I have just bought myself a British made WW2 dated 'Khulla' worn by Indian Muslim troops. The khulla is a conical type head covering around which a 'Pargri' (turban) is wrapped. My khulla is War Department marked and is made from heavy khaki corduroy. When the pagri is wrapped around the khulla, the loose end is left protruding above the pagri in the manner of a fan tail. This is known as the 'Shamla'. See last illustration. As I only have the khulla and I would like to complete this piece of WW2 Commonwealth headgear, I'll have to make a pagri myself. I was wondering if anybody out there may have an idea of the dimensions and material type of the Indian Army military pagri as used in the Second World War. I have been able to find one set of pagri size dimensions, these being 20 Inches wide by 15 Yards long. This is just a generic size I was able to find when researching turbans. However I feel that if the pagri is made from standard British Khaki Drill material the above figure would make the pagri a bit too large and very thick when worn. The size might be OK if it is made from a linen type material though. Does anybody out there any any ideas or advice as to the correct pagri size and material.
