Am trying to get hold of one of these - the only place so far that I have found that can do them is Medway medals but dont really want to pay that amount to have it made - any suggestions as to where I could get one would be much apprieciated!
 
It's a hat, worn by a drill instructor.

Caps, SD (Service Dress) I believe, going back to something like 1906

Only unit I know of that still issues them (and I may be a couple of years out of date) is the Household Cavalry Regt.

Chat up someone from the HCR and they may have a buckshee one to pass on. complete with brown chinstrap!
 
I think the Custodians at Colchester wear them, too.

You're more likely to get one from HCav.
 
The girls who do guiding at Grand Canyon have hats like a lemon squeezer.
Worn dead straight with a chin strap and a back strap
Total sex on wheels

And you know this how, IF you were paying so much attention to the HAT?

When presenting (or admiring) a piece of fine art, the frame is the finishing touch which enhances the beauty of the piece.

Or perhaps birds in hats 'do it' for some of us? ;)
