This is the cap I was talking about in the Navy research thread, it arrived today. From what I can tell it is an original cap and tally, named to C Gill and dated 1910(it looks like). There is a maker mark on the cap but I can't read it yet and it looks like size 7. The cap is shorter in height than the WWII period Naval caps. The tally looks coloured on in the pics but it is in fact embroidered.
I also realize the tally is tied on incorrectly, this is one of the reasons I was trying to research C Gill so I could confirm the tally was original to the cap.
Any and all comments are appreciated as this is the first pre WWI/WWI cap and tally I have handled.
