Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice King’s Royal Rifle Corps Other Ranks pre WW1 Busby. It features a Black sealskin exterior with attached plaited cords. There is a corded boss to front, which would usually hold the Regimental insignia, however this example does not have it equipped. The top of the cap is black wool felt and the front is equipped with a black over red & black hair hackle plume.
It has a black leather chin strap, though it is somewhat degraded, as is the black leather sweatband, which has lost almost all of the original black finish. The crown is marked with the original maker information under the Royal Supplier logo:
J. & B. Pearse & Co.
28, HART STREET
There is a retailers tag also still attached to the cap, but we do not know when it is from. This may have been purchased on the secondary market at some point.
Very attractive and ready to become a part of your British Military Headgear collection!
