British Wool Scarf that Doubles as Fatigue Cap

Thought I would bring this funny item out that is well documented in movies etc. as a fatigue cap (heavily used by commandos) but most don't know that it starts as an issue scarf! I don't have any idea how they fold it to make hat! big_smile Date is readable a well as 1940 date but not the manufacturer. Hope you will enjoy! smile  Barron

Re: British Wool Scarf that Doubles as Fatigue Cap

Hi Barron
I have two Cap Comforter / Scarf  in mint condition not folded itself to form the cap and one, dated 1941, originally folded.
Here is my Cap Comforter / Scarf dated 1941 as originally folded

I try to explain to you how it has been folded by the soldier:

http://i66.tinypic.com/sya3ok.jpg

1) approximately at 2/5 of its lenght fold it into itself towards the inside. As the the part slipped into the interior is longer, fold another time. You can see it folded inside.

2) now you fold the scarf, near the open side, at about 4 cm.

3) fold another time at about 13 cm.

the cap has done.
