I picked up this silver wing motif hat off ebay recently.
A little item, a random purchase, but I'm really pleased with it!
...and it got me thinking!
It's obviously from a mid 1970's 'Quatermasters' small card and is even featured as such in the 1975 equipment manual.
...but the first hat I ever had with the motif was a blue pilot version on a late 1960's Mintex 'Buddy Action' figure. Am I correct in thinking the AM pilot of the time's hat lacked the motif? Did it appear as a KO before a 'genuine' Palitoy item or are they both copies of an earlier Hasbro piece?
