2nd Bn Monmouthshire Regiment OR's Forage (Dress) cap

Recommended Posts

a fairly recent addiiton to my collection, OR's undress cap dated 1909 and unit marked to the 2nd Bn Monmouthshire regiment. A good early example with a leather peak, not often seen for an OR to any regiment from this period I think. In good condition apart from the chinstrap and still with its original brass badge. The battalion was formed in 1907, only two years before this cap was issued to them.

Adding one more picture of the bn markings as part of it was missed on this very rare pre great war other ranks forage cap.

I very carefully removed the badge for a photo and interestingly it has the long slider seen on badges during the early Edwardian period that were phased out about the same time as this cap was issued in 1909.
