British Commonwealth Navy Officer's Cap ADMIRAL

  • Closed: Thu 21 Aug 2008, 9:00 pm
Listing #: 171158468
Royal British, Australian, Canadian, and New Zealand Navy SENIOR officer's peaked hat.

Worn exclusively by the rank of ADMIRAL
.......As denoted by the TWO rows of "scrambled egg" on the visor
(the lower rank of "Commander" entitled to only the single row of "scrambled egg")

The badge has the distinctive "King's crown" used by officers on their visor caps, whilst serving aboard all British Commonwealth Naval ships from the time of the death of Queen Victoria up until the death of King George the 6th

The older "king's crown" type badge on this cap, was replaced with the currently used "Queen's crown" in 1954

This type of cap was worn between & during both World Wars last century (IE WW1 & WW2)

Eminently suitable for re-enactors or theatrical use

This BRAND NEW cap was recently hand-made for an Australian theatrical company
The manufacture was commissioned to the very highest standard using GOLD BULLION WIRE to create the badge and the dual oakleaf clusters that denote the wearer's rank

It is NOT an original antique nautical item........however will look GREAT on display in your bar or boat cabin

A very authentic replica, made to exacting quality standards.

NOT a typical poorly-made "stage-quality-only" copy.

This should provide a lifetime's wear OR make a great display item in your boat

This would make a SUPERB GIFT for the presumptuous Yachtie, Boatie, or currently "mere Captain"..... in your life ??

What man would NOT want the "promotion" to **ADMIRAL of their own fleet** ?

I am currently able to supply a hat in the following METRIC sizes .......
# 58 (UK size 7), # 59 (UK size 7-3/8), # 60 (UK size 7-1/2), & # 61(UK size 7-5/8)

If you want to ensure a specific size ?

Then use "Buy it NOW" and you will have FIRST CHOICE

AND ***I will pay*** cost of insured NZPO delivery on all "Buy It Now" sales :-)
