    Hello,

    I am trying to identify this Forage Cap from my great Uncle, assumed WW2, he was in the British Royal Artillery but this cap which belonged to him is not RA (I think), can anyone identify it please?

    Many thanks for your help.

    Royal Army Pay Corps at a very rough guess. Don't quote me though.

    Thanks GRW, that might make sense as he worked with my grandad who was in the pay corps, what makes you think it could be, Colour?

    Yeah, I'm sure their official FS cap colours were yellow crown/piping. Can't find anything online though.

    Hi Gordon, sorry for the rather uneducated question, what does FS stand for?
