Description
An Albert Pattern British Regimental shako. The shako is navy blue, wool-covered, and hard peaked with a low, narrow front crown and a longer back brim which slightly flairs upward. There is a black band around the base of the crown and a leather sweatband on the inside. The inside is not lined but has the manufacturer's is label printed on it.
