Ah Smithy, i apologise profusely for upsetting you as the self appointed king of the forum, i totally forgot my place. I must try harder to bow to your superior knowledge and be sensutive of your super thin skin and not dare to have an opinion that deviates from yours.... i thought i could have an opinion of my own and share it like you so frequently do.
I hardly threw a wobbly. Calling me a dick, using the “F” word, those are signs of a wobbly.....Get a sense of reality old chap. It’s just a forum and i, like you, am a nobody.
But thanks for making me smile ;)
You really do know how to make a complete fool of yourself don't you?

Let's back it up a little Gertrude shall we and tell how it actually happened...

First off you're one of those people on internet boards who likes having little digs at people to try and stir up shit and get a response. For whatever reason that's how you get your jollies.

Then probably because you're not getting enough fibre, or because you stubbed your toe, or more likely, because you're a cantankerous old fart, you threw an epic hissy-fit in the "What are you wearing thread" all because you didn't like having to see certain people wearing the same jacket and most offensively to your bitter old self, you took umbrage with people talking about the weather. You acted like a complete and utter tit.

Then above, you got your knickers in a knot because I said I didn't like British marmite. Think about that for a second, you got riled about someone saying that they didn't like a particular breakfast spread for fuck's sake.

Nice try though in trying to make out I'm the super sensitive one but here's a newsflash, I'm not the one having a hissy-fit about someone not liking a breakfast condiment.

Not only that, because you're so ludicrously hypersensitive you extrapolated it out that because someone doesn't like British Marmite, that must mean they hate everything British. If you honestly can't see how stupid and pathetic that is, then you're even sillier than you came across as to start with.

After all the bad language and my kerfuffle with Mr Marmite I thought it might be best to actually contribute something relevant and slightly less combative to this thread.

Here's my caps, nothing remarkable and as I mentioned earlier. Two tweed caps, a Melbourne Dees member cap, RNZAF cap, Norwegian service cap, a M43 German cap. The last two are never worn. I also have my Dad's RNZAF officer cap from the late 40s/early 50s but I've only even worn that to a fancy dress bash. Strangely my venerable old NZ Black Caps cap which has been a veteran of many a boozy cricket match has strangely disappeared and I'm slightly worried that the Viking I'm married to might have burnt it.

Vikings burn stuff - surely not!!!
I had a pair of trousers when I met her that I was quite fond of, she set fire to them, luckily not whilst I was wearing them.

She really is the wild northern Viking.

When she met my Mum the first time and my mother said to her, "What do you do dear when it's dark over winter?"

To which she replied without missing a beat, "We drink cognac, we play cards and we make love."

My dear old Mum took me aside later that evening and said to me, "You want to hang onto her, she sounds like fun!"

M43 cap never worn, because you live in Norway Tim?

No it doesn't fit Matt and even if it did it's not really my style. It's a nice cap though, unbadged and unissued. I got it thrown in with some militaria I bought yonks ago.

I only really wear the tweed ones and the Dees one is my fishing and sailing cap.

If it’s a 56-57 and you don’t want it anymore I’d be happy to work a price. Hard to find one without insignia

I love my DAK, reckon they’re one of the most stylish looking caps with its peaked front. I get quite a lot of comments on it.

Sadly it's bigger than that mate. Might just give it to my father-in-law, he was asking about it the other day and a woollen cap is quite a useful thing for when you're up in the mountains or tramping around here.

Wasn't sure if my deerstalker counted as a cap?
BTW if anyone's after a motorcycle cap the above one has only been worn a couple of times...made in Japan, like most of the above.
