Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is an excellent example of an early Post British India peaked visor, as worn by a General Officer in the Indian Land Forces (Army). This green color is the uniform type that was worn from 1947 to 1980, though we believe this to date to the 1960s. The overall condition is quite nice with a level of wear consistent with service use, but is otherwise presented without any extensive damage or repairs.

The Indian Army is the land-based branch and largest component of the Indian Armed Forces. The President of India is the Supreme Commander of the Indian Army, and its professional head is the Chief of Army Staff (COAS). The Indian Army was established on 1 April 1895 alongside the long established presidency armies of the East India Company, which too were absorbed into it in 1903. Some princely states maintained their own armies which formed the Imperial Service Troops which, along with the Indian Army formed the land component of the Armed Forces of the Crown of India, responsible for the defence of the Indian Empire. The Imperial Service Troops were merged into the Indian Army after independence. The units and regiments of the Indian Army have diverse histories and have participated in several battles and campaigns around the world, earning many battle and theatre honours before and after Independence.

The cap is in wonderful condition without any extensive damage or issues to speak of. The only “issues” with the visor is that it does show wear and fading, but nothing that subtract from the beauty of the item.
