Default Royal Navy WW2 Sailor U BOAT Casualty CAP in Tin

This is an interesting one. It's original early war sailors cap in its transit tin

The tine marked J HOGG D/KX 80680. Tony did some resrerach on this and the sailor was lost on board HMS MAHRATTA on Feb 25th 1944 when the ship was torpedoed by the U956 off Norway!

Yes you're right I should have tried earlier, I'm very disappointed with myself. Thanks for replying just the same.

Part of your Family that but we get a lot of it ,mainly medals with folks chasing the ones we have sold.The worst are Divorces when the bitter Wife sells her Husbands Gul War medals etc ...Had a few of these and the guys have turned nasty,blaming us for selling them and one needing a call to the Cops!! The latter straight there,told us they get tons of problems with ex squaddies.
