162) A pretty tatty post WW2 RAF airman’s peaked cap and papers. All items are named to 4006861 Sgt W.Nulty. It seems that he served in the RAF from the late 1940s into the 1950s. the cap is as found and pretty tatty. The top is excellent, the underside shows minor moth trails. The sides show minor visible moth nips but if the cap band is lifted then lots more can be seen hidden underneath. The peak is good but could do with a polish. The chinstrap is excellent. The original Kings crown RAF cap badge is in place and very dirty with age. The inside of the cap is nicely named. The underside
Of the peak shows surface wear and the leather sweatband has almost come totally unstitched but for a small section to the rear. it is a little dry and would benefit from polish or leather feed. It has RAF ink stampings; the date to the end of the code sequence looks to be 46? May be 48?. It is a size 7 1/8 . there are then 2 items on being a photographic type of copy of a newspaper article. This mentions Sgt Nulty as a “tenor”. The other is a 1958 dated letter with envelope regarding gratuity payments.
