Boxed WW2 American Naval Commanders Service cap and Two Covers, Size 7 1/2. HE 864 - HE 864
A boxed original WW2 American Naval Commander's Service Visor cap and two spare covers, named to Commander G. Y. Wilkins and manufactured by Berkshire Flex. As per the 1941 'minimum outfit' requirements, Navy officers were to purchase 2 caps, 1 rain cover, 1 blue cover, 3 white covers, and 2 khaki covers. Later, in 1943, when the grey working uniform was introduced, a matching cover would also be required. An Officer's cap can easily be identified by its large distinctive cap device, cap band with a backing for the device, and gold colour chin strap. The Officer's cap device design was a spread winged eagle in silver, perched on a silver shield, superimposed on a pair of gold, crossed anchors. Its height was approximately 2 1/4-inches and could be made of embroidered wire, metal, or plastic. Prior to May, 1941 the eagle on the officer's cap device faced to the left and thereafter the design was changed so that the eagle faced to the right. This was done so that the eagle's face would be aligned with the sword arm, which is the heraldic position of honour. At this same time all uniform buttons, including cap buttons, were changed so that the eagle faced right. This cap is boxed in the original manufacturers cardboard box which is complete with the lid. It is in good condition. There is a label at one end which gives the style as "Gold Visor" and size as "7 1/2". The cap is complete with the device, gold chin strap and gilt side chin strap buttons. The inside of the cap has a leather sweatband which is in good condition and a liner with "Berkshire Flex" and a hand written name tab "CDR GEO. Y. Wilkins". It is complete with a white cotton cover and navy blue wool cover, both look in as new condition. There is no damage to the cap or top cover and overall it is in very good condition.
