    1913 Racoon Skin Hat

    Post by jholl72 on Wed Jul 18, 2012 8:43 pm

    Hey guys,
    Picked this up a few weeks ago. This is a racoon skin hat with a right hand hackle for a Fusilier Regiment. The racoon skin hats were larger than the busby and smaller than the bearskin hats.

    Hackle colours:
    Lancashire Fusiliers: Primrose yellow
    Royal Fusiliers (City of London Regiment): White
    Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers: Grey
    Royal Irish Fusiliers: Green
    Royal Northumberland Fusiliers: Red over white
    Royal Scots Fusiliers: White
    Royal Warwickshire Fusiliers: Blue over Gold
    Royal Welch Fusiliers: White

    There are also two holes in the front of the cap to accomodate a racoon skin cap badge, larger than the regular cap badge.

    Jeff how many damn times do I have to tell you.... MAN it's a damned skunk hat.

    Just kidding buddy. I love it but have no idea what Unit is belongs to. From time to time, I look about and see if anything resembles it. So far nothing I have been able to locate yet.

    Next time we meet up, you have to bring it.

    Thanks Steve, I didn't post it originally here as its not Canadian, but I figured you guys might like to see it also.

    Cliff, I will bring it and a few other goodies...some of which are yours. When you coming down again?
