    Victorian IMS ‘Tasseled’ Field Service Cap. Query.

    Recommended Posts

    Hello Gents,

    I’m happy to post some more pictures if anyone wants to see the cap in detail but for now my question regards the tassel👇


    I’ve looked for any mention or picture of any FSC , anything with this feature and I have found nothing.


    Regs were in constant change during late Victorian era, so irregularity was common especially overseas and particularly amongst the Army Medical Services but there is nothing at all I can see about this. & I’ve read through a lot!

    At this time the owner had recently joinec (1899) the Indian Medical Service (IMS) and was not an officer in the RAMC

    - I believe IMS were considered as being ‘mounted’ infantry, is it related to that?

    - I know he was attached to ‘11th Madras Infantry’ and ‘66th Punjabis’ between 1899 and 1902, is it related to that?


    If anyone can explain it to me that would be great but I’d be happy with any thoughts or pointers 🤷‍♂️
