WWII Officer's service dress cap 7th Hussars


Recommended Posts

Nothing spectacular, but a nice officer's service dress visor cap for the 7th Hussars, a regiment that saw much action in WWII. They served in North Africa, Burma, and Italy.

High quality cavalry twill, made by Herbert Johnson.

Very nice addition Bob. Interesting to see it has plain buttons which if I remember correctly is a regimental trait shared with some of the other hussar regiments.

Yes, some, not all hussar regiments, used plain side buttons, to mimic the plain ball buttons on their full dress tunics. The 7th wore plain buttons, but I know that at least the 10th, 14th/20th, and 15th/19th Hussars had regimental pattern side buttons.

Thanks for your compliments.
