I have added a number of additional CFSCs to my website but there are still many variants missing. I would be grateful for photos of CFSCs in your collection as well as photos of SWW soldiers wearing these.

I thought Mil-Arm in Edmonton had a nice collection years ago. I know your college friend in Calgary had a roomful as well. The only ones I have are unfortunately without provenance.

Thnx Mike.
Just to clarify, I am looking for
1 - Photos of Coloured Field Service Caps in anybody's collection
2 - any photos of CFSCs in wear
The two items do not have to be related.

Bonjour,

Here are 3 pictures of soldiers from the 17th Duke of York's Royal Canadian Hussars wearing CFSC:

Clive, I have a CFSC for an officer of The Royal Regiment of Canada. I also have the following digital picture in black & while. The collar dogs definitively identify this as an officer in the RRegtC.

Perhaps when you get to Calgary, you might like to take a high-quality photo of the cap.
Regards,
Dan
