Response to Re blouse & cap

I'd agree, the blouse looks fine to me, and even though it has no rank, is the same style issued to men of all ranks.

The cap I think is post war Canadian, and looks like officers material (baretha wool) although its hard to tell from the photograph. Like Shide, I have never heard of 'Marvel Headwear', which is another thing to lead me to believe its post war.

You cant really tell what the badge backing is. If cloth, its very odd and I dont have an answer. If its made of fibre (a little like plastic) it could just be the 'backing plate' put on the outside in error. But again, thats more a post war thing (the backing plate, not that its on the outside!)

Like Shide, go for the blouse if the price is right, but leave the cap alone.
