Very rare third pattern NLF soft cap green/brown in color; made of wool; and is equipped with a yellow (anchor) and green (oval) bevo insignia, leather chin strap, and cap tie. The cap is not equipped with side air vents. The inside of the cap is equipped with a leather sweatband, loose weave lining, and has a rectangular-shaped procurement office/name tag stamped onto the inside crown of the cap. The leather chin strap is held in place by two side brass retaining clips and washers. The cap does have provisions for a havelock around the lower edge of the cap. In unissued condition but showing one small hole. A real Naval Landing Force cap - not just a green navy cap.
