Women’s khaki hat (WA)
This is the first khaki hat for female police officers in WA. Prior to being issued with uniforms in early 1980’s all female police in Western Australia wore plain clothes. This hat was chosen for the member stationed in Kalgoorlie. It is a Tyrolean style hat with a brown leather puggaree with the badge attached. The uniform was a light khaki coloured dress with buttons all the way down the front, worn with stockings, brown shoes and to carry a brown handbag.
