    As a Spcial Forces NCO once said:"Berets are fu*king cold in winter,hot in summer,offer no protection from sun,rain,or snow.They do make excellent barf bags when flights get rough when jumping.I wouldn't trade my beret for anything!"
    Of course this was pre-"everybody gets to wear a beret"days.

    For Parades/Base use, I would rather have Forage Caps or Kepis



    Than the Officers 'Crush Cap'


    I think Berets are suited more to Paratroops/Commandos or SF Units

    Most Army Regiments should just use these


    Ridgeway Caps well the best!


    Its mad the way Americans wear berets

    We use to starch ours on a plastic tubes and then form them. Looked real snazzy. I notice on boonie hats no one forms them any more. Just sort of the slauch fit.

    In Oki some of us took it to momma san to get the points stitch so they would always look sharp. Was not authorise for inspection though.

    I LOVED my beret, thank god they let me keep it. its not supposed to keep the sun from your eyes or the rain off your shoulder. it looks good (if you form it right) the american pre-formed ones look like shat that is why I allways hear them complaining about them, here in canada its kinda an individual thing. in uniform everyone looks the same but the way you have your beret is different (poor bloody RCR)

    It certainly looks nice with a beret, but the only armed forces in
    the world who knows how to wear them in a sharp manner is
    the French.
