1943 Dated Tropical Field Cap

Hi, I’ve had this 1943 dated and RB numbered tropical field cap for a number of years but haven’t posted it previously. 

The RB number is 0/1156/0018 – the only other example of headgear that I’ve been able to find with the same RB number
on the internet is a continental field grey field cap dated 1944. 

I’ve included a couple of shots of the markings on this other continental cap.

Regards
Markus

Re: 1943 Dated Tropical Field Cap

Thanks for the positive comments guys:) and sorry for not replying sooner - but I've been out of town on holidays.

Unfortunately Chris I haven't been able to find the manufacturer behind the RB number.  I don't think that the number has been previously included in the comprehensive tropical cap list on the WAF.

Yes Rich, I was pretty happy with the larger size.

Regards Mark.
