I wanted to let you know that I was blessed with an original-run Tim Hortons' hat like this while in Afghanistan as a CFPSA employee in 2007, and have decided to sell it. At KAF, I was involved in the receiving of seas containers of Tim Hortons products. As the Shipping/Receiving Coordinator, I had two CFPSA hats and my Timmies cap was not a required part of my uniform. I never wore my camo Tim Hortons hat, and kept it in mint condition as a souvenir of an incredible experience. This Christmas I was looking through my souvenirs at my parents' home in Ottawa, and was sad to see this beautiful hat boxed.
The hat is a genuine piece of kit I was given while on tour in 2007 as a civilian at Kandahar Air Field, not long after the grand opening of the location on Canada Day in 2006. In the listing I will include detailed photos, including the tag, for verification.
The item will go for auction on eBay.ca this Thursday 21 Jan, at 8:30 PM EST. The title will be: "Tim Hortons Kandahar Afghanistan Cammo Hat" and I'll post a link here. I was so happy to receive it, and I'm sure it will go to someone who will treasure this unique piece of Canada's history as I have.
