Constructed of khaki wool, the cap features a single piece crown and four piece body stitched to the main band. The band is flanked by two period “Canada” brass buttons that hold a thin doubled over supple leather chinstrap in excellent condition. Though the cap badge is missing, remains of patina suggest a rounded badge with kings crown. Inside the cap, the green coloured cardboard duck bill shows considerable wear and use. The leather headband remains supple though has come away from the main band in spots. In the centre of the cap remains a label for the Muir Cap company in Toronto covered by a waffled waterproof sheet. Furthermore, the cap retains it’s original stiffener in the crown.
