BACKGROUND: At the beginning of September 1939, the Canadian soldier looked remarkably like his counter part from 1918, wearing the 1914-18 pattern khaki service dress and the 1908-pattern web equipment. It was in September 1939 that the Canadian Army officially adopted the battle dress that had just been approved for use by the British in March 1939 and the first new uniforms arrived the last week of October. The RCAF battle dress was of the same pattern as the Army but was made from blue cloth instead of khaki.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: A dark blue, wool, winter cap, with a crown made from five triangular pieces stitched together, with a round edged cap badge flap to the front and a two piece neck and ear flap assembly stitched to the rim. The ear flaps fold up the side of the cap, when not in use, and are tied together over the top by two lengths of black cloth tape which can also be used as chinstraps. Couple of tiny moth holes. Maker marked and date for 1942. Size 7 1/8.
