trench cap

Post by madjon »

the soft cap 1916, im looking for a repro one, preferably second hand and a bit tatty, could be wool or denim,as long as its the right pattern, want it for doing a bit of ldv stuff, and dads old kit from the last war has turned up in more than a few photos, they are available if you send off to india or the us, but as im after a used one which looks a bit tattered and used, anyone got one? and i know i could age a new one but if i can find one which is already tatty then it makes life easier, that and how many people ask for tatty repro items? so if anyones got one let me know.

Motion picture props do one for £50. I think theyve been aged for movie stock.

the best way to ensure you have no more german kit to buy is look at the prices soaring through the roof, genuine zeltbahn full of holes and moth rotten rings and mouldy £85 :shock:

ww1 is usefull as with the simple step of changing your respirator and badges you can become early ww2, i also suspect the price of items will go zooming up soon as the 100th anniversary of the start of ww1 approaches, so buying bits now may save a fortune in the long run.

Uh-hmm...

Having handled Motion Picture Props WW1 reproduction items in the past, I personally wouldn't touch them with a 10 foot barge pole...

For the same money they charge for some of their items (especially hat-wise) you could get an amazing quality reproduction from Richard "Dickie" Knight (I have one of his Gor'blimeys that is approaching 5 years old now and still looks amazing).

If you're interested, let me know and I'll send his email address.
