Here is my Burma slouch hat to go with my full Burma uniform.
''Slouch hat'' would be a more correct.
How much did that cost you?
thanks i couldnt remember what it was called and i got it with a big lot for just £100 all together.
I also got the burma style shirt, shorts, trousers, dated boots, 3 jackets all dated, commando hat, smoke mortar fin, real grenade, original toothbrush and original shaving razor in its original bag, duffle bag and a lot of other items all for £100
A couple of photos of a representation of the full uniform, as seen at the French Army Museum
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.
, original dated boots
, stained trousers
, 3 jackets
, duffel bag
and a grenade
More to come....
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.
Was there anymore?I hope the grenade is no longer active!
