It has a pre-curved peak and stitched ventilation eyelets. Size can be adjusted with a rip-strip adjuster at the back of the cap.

Perfect head gear for those hot sunny days!

For over 150 years, between 1688 and 1850, Falmouth Packet ships filled the harbour, landing at Greenbank or Custom House Quay. The Packet Service made Falmouth the information hub of the Empire, second only to London for knowing the news of the day.

The end of the Packet era came in 1850, a result of the steam age. The newly built steamships were faster and more reliable than the old sailing packets and could thus reach London whatever the weather or circumstance.
