Very rare WW2 British army issue 1941 dated toothbrush.
Marked to its bone handle ' C LTD 1941 /I ' with broad arrow & ' Warranted Pure Bristle Sterilised ' .
Almost impossible to find & probably one of the rarest components of the WW2 Tommy small kit.
Introduced in 1915 this rare item of headdress is a totally correct WW1 period Tam O' Shanter of the Royal Scots which has survived in excellent condition.
Its WW1 period construction can be immediately ascertained by the large top & overlapping double eyelet adjustment at rear . Adjustment tape still present. The tuft on top is made from khaki wool . A well worn two pronged Royal Scots cap badge is still affixed to front with khaki material backing fringed at the edges to represent tartan. Interior has a quilted lining & although one can see where they were the markings are now well worn away.
