    In the Second World War they were called forage caps so that is probably correct.

    T/6/RH A Coy in trenches at Festubert June 1915 four weeks after arriving in France.
    Four men are named but I dont know who's who?
    Pte Deane, L/Cpl Newel, Majury and L/Cpl Willis.
    Newel and Willis were shot and killed on a patrol into no-mans-land on the 10th June this would be only a day or so after this picture was taken.
    For bringing them in under fire the first decorations awarded-to the 6th were received. Pte Jenkins the D.C.M, Pte Deane the Croix de Guerre, Pte Macdonald MID.
    You will notice that the men are wearing brass badges.
    Ref Wauchope Vol 11 pp131.
