Sgt Klondike's stetson is a true copy.  But, you are right, the average U.S. cowboy probably wouldn't know the difference having never seen one in real life. other than in the movies.

Cheers!

During my uniform gathering adventure, I was fortunate to locate a new/old inventory RCMP issued hat and hatband.  The sweatband has the maker and RCMP markings.  It was made by Biltmore-Canada on October 1997.

I'm pretty sure that "Rattlesnake Jack" posted some pics on this topic a few days back. Where did they go?

Yesterday I watched the enhanced DVD version of "Gene Autry and the Mounties".  BS story but enjoyable nevertheless.  The "Mounties" were wearing 1950 uniforms while being RNWMP (1904-1920).  In one of the shoot outs a Sgt was actually using the NWMP carbine.  Another Sgt had no service stars.  The story line took place in western Canada however most the bad guys were French Canadians, touques, sashes, broken English, etc.

You are probably wondering how Gene Autry got into this story.  He was a U.S. Marshall from Montana, he and his deputy played by Pat Buttrum (sic) following the trail of bad guys into Canada.  They, together with the "Mounties" rounded them up.

Bruce Carruthers, an ex RCMP member who played a background Mountie in the movie, was the technical adviser.  He tried to keep the Mounties as authentic as Hollywood would allow him.  The salute was correct, palm facing forward.

Just as an side note:  Bruce Carruthers was technical adviser on several of Hollywood's Mountie movies during the late 40's and into the 50's.  In Pierre Burton's book, "The Americanization of Canada" by Hollywood, it stated that Bruce had an uphill battle with the directors trying to keep the Mountie image correct.

In Pierre Burton's book, "The Americanization of Canada" by Hollywood, it stated that Bruce had an uphill battle with the directors trying to keep the Mountie image correct.

The key word in the above is "image". That is what the rcmp suffers from greatly at the moment.

In addition to making up arbitrary gun laws that are almost impossible to keep track of and follow, the list of women signed up in the class action lawsuit for sexual harrassment in the force has risen to 11,000!

This is why you don't see many Canadians anxious to portray NWMP/rcmp impressions in CAS. We'd be fearful some lady would charge us for inappropriate conduct - :>)

Picked up a nice pair of RNWMP collar dogs.

During the reign of Edward VII or George V.  Is it full size or a lapel pin?  I have a copy in lapel pin size.
