Blue Akubra style hat
This hat was part of Larry’s uniform issue when he moved back to Perth from Roebourne in 1989 and was issued with a blue uniform. The hat was for summer wear. If worn in the rain the blue dye tended to leech from the hat onto the head and face. The same style of hat was issued in khaki with the khaki uniform issue. These hats are no longer part of the West Australian Police Uniform issue.
