    Mark,this cap is tiny ,it measures 51 cm, inside circumferance.

    Maybe it was a Cadet issue,or Hobbit issue...dunno but it's very small Wink

    I think that is why there are only tiny ones on sale, I still need one though for the collection. Was thinking of going to Malvern on sunday, but I dont think the funds will allow it!

    That's a good point, I guess the market is flooded with Cadet issue GS Caps, as all the Falklands issued caps,are already in peoples collections or are long gone...bummer!!

    How much are these things going for now...just out of interest Question

    Cheers Mate Wink

    Nice hat Gary... my local surplus store has bins and bins of these. Some look brand-new and others are faded and ally looking, but they are all in teeny tiny sizes.

    I've always heard that crap hats weren't very popular with squaddies, so where have all the wearable-sized covers gone? Laughing

    Thanks Ben, very true these crap hat's were not popular at all, for me I wore my Beret with pride,and NEVER wore one of these, but they are great to collect I suppose ,cos' they're cheap ..and err cheap,and err cheap I guess Laughing

    Gary,yet again this obsessiveness with trying to pattern everything Sad Sad Sad

    There was no pattern type to these-the only items ever officially pattern typed were the 60 Patt Smocks+Trs(both OG and DPM) and the 68 Patt Smocks+Trs.

    The Pattern type refers to the clothing and NOT the colour of DPM.

    What can I say ,I have a case of C.O.C.D ( camo obsessive compulsive disorder), my Doctor told me the only way to get over this, is to avoid get overly excited about trying to catergise every DPM item I see...it is'nt working clearly Rolling Eyes Razz
