    Great war Royal Artillery Territorial officers forage cap

    Recommended Posts

    A WWI field grade officers forage cap for the RA territorial force, 1908-1917. The makers went out of business in 1917 and were well known suppliers of headgear and swords etc prior to their demise. The cap is sadly missing most of its chinstrap but other wise is in pretty good condition for its age and has the RA TF gilt officers badge with laurel leave upper scroll rather than the Ubique seen on normal RA badges.

    The maker of the cap, Hamburger, Rogers & co were well known military outfitters who had been in existence for many years, originally established in 1750,

    1796 R. and H. Hewetson.
    1814 Hamburger and Co.
    1827 Hamburger, Harwood and Co.
    1839 Hamburger, Rogers and Co.

    then from 1841 when Rogers joined as Hamburger, Rogers & Co, Kings st, London, until they went out of business in 1917, though some sources claim Rogers joined in 1839.

    They were best known for supplying swords and headgear, though originally they were renown suppliers of lace for the Royal family and for military uniforms.
