Greetings everyone! I am new to this forum, and until just recently I wasn't that interested in WWII, but I started reading on the campaigns like the Burma Campaign and became very interested in the tropical warfare of WWII, not so much the battles in Europe. A few years ago, with my vague (and stereotypical ) knowledge, I initially only the Aussies wore slouches in WWII which they did, but they were not alone. I realized the British including Scottish Regiments often wore slouch hats in the campaigns like Burma for the heat. I wanted to create this forum to 1. learn more about a Royal Scots Slouch Hat I just purchased on-line (I just bought it and these pictures are from the seller's store) 2. see if any other forum members have any Scottish Slouches (or British in general) to share. 3. to learn more about what their daily use and their use in battle were. I am no WWII nor WWII militaria expert, and have just been interested in the Far East Campaigns recently, and before I mainly focused on the Victorian military campaigns. This thread is specifically for British and preferably Scottish Slouches used during the Far East campaigns. Pictures below of my Royal Scots Slouch hat, I believe it is other ranks because its very simple in design, no chinstrap unfortunately but other than that the Slouch Hat is in good condition. I've heard that these were worn because of the heat, but also sometimes used in battle? Maybe some experts can help me out with this. I've seen a picture of a Royal Scot Fusilier (different regiment) soldier aiming his machine gun while taking cover in Burma, and he is wearing a slouch. I could appreciate some help to find out if these were sometimes worn in battle or not. Also, if any other posters have any English, Welsh, Irish, Scottish or colonial regiment slouch hats to share I'd love to see some examples you may have in your personal collection. Thanks for reading, have a nice day.
