The new archive building is called The West Riding History Centre.
Stanley Royd opened in 1818 and closed 1984

Armed Forces / Army cap
« on: Thursday 11 November 21 19:20 GMT (UK)  »
Hello. while clearing my late father in laws house we found a black army cap with red piping and the badge of Royal Army Ordnance Corps which was his brothers unit as dad was in the Pay Corps. All the photos show them in khaki so we are wondering why the cap is black and how did he get to keep it? We found  letters about returning army property. It is surprising the amount of work that went into making a cap. I tried to attach a photo of it but it won't do it. Thank you
