Hello, I'am looking for a British style slouch hat for my JG. Is it hard to find ?
Got an image to share of what you are looking for?
I believe he is looking for this type of hat. I think of them more as Australian hats, but believe some British units wore them as well.
Unfortunately your location isn't listed, but if you are in the UK, they are available on UK ebay. Link below:
Thankyou. I 'll try.
Aussie Slouch Hats:
Hi Ryker, these types of slouch or bush hats hats were worn in Burma during WW2 and in the South African war by UK forces, the Gurkhas still wear a form of them for ceremonial dress. The difference for the UK version was often a press stud clip to fold them up and a smaller thinner puggaree or felt band. They are everywhere in Oz but where you would get them in the UK I'm not sure
