    ''Slouch hat'' would be a more correct.
    How much did that cost you?

    There is no hard-and-fast rule, but 'Bush Hat' seems the more favoured term amongst British troops and 'Slouch Hat' amongst Australians.
    Do show us the rest of the haul. £100 is very cheap; a decent pair of green trousers is worth more than that alone.
    ceolredmonger and Ashorty97 like this.

    My dad called his a 'bush hat'. The brimmed cotton hat which continued in use for many years and often called a bush hat, he called a 'jungle hat'.

    That was a really good buy. I am sorry we missed that for the Kohima Museum who are looking for exactly that kind of stuff....

    I bought it of a man that came to me when I was displaying my things and he just said he has all his dad's old stuff if I wanted it.
