Sarawak Rangers hat colour?

Post  zebra on Sat 07 Jul 2018, 5:29 am

What colour as the hat or songkok worn by the Sarawak Rangers on the 1920s till 1932 when they were disbanded ?
Black or a dark/ navy blue ?

I have seen Sean's 1928 illustration, but just not too sure of the colour.

Were they permanently disbanded as early as 1932? I have a photo of them in 1953 - but wearing berets and Australian style slouch hats. A coloured photo dated 1963 shows the governor of Sarawak (splendid in white Colonial Service uniform) inspecting an honour guard wearing black headdresses. However these may be police.

The rangers of the "kingdom" of Sarawak were disbanded in 1932  ( replaced by 800-1000  Sarawak constabulary), but was reformed  in late (August- , September ) 1941.
  I have seen a display model of the rangers in the original white uniform with black braiding, the songkok hat is black.
