    Gentlemen (and Ladies), would anyone either be able to send me, or point me in the right direction, to the Dress Regulations appertaining to the wearing of berets; especially about beret-band height above eyes and location of Capbage/Capstar/Grenade; please?

    I have trawled ArmyNet and done a cursory search on here, but cant find it.

    Thanks, in advance,

    The band above the eyes? Thought it was supposed to cover the eyes! The badge goes just next to your left ear.

    The one on the right looks like an Accrington Stanley supporter, circa 1910, what the **** I suppose it is Ally.

    c. Beret. The beret is to be worn so that the black band is horizontal around the head and 25mm above the eyebrows. The surplus material is to be pulled down over the right ear and the badge clearly displayed in a position directly above the left eye. The adjustment ribbon is to be secured with a knot and the surplus ends hidden from sight.

    The bloke on the right looks like he might have served previously in the French Alpine Chasseurs. I'd post a pic but I don't know how.

    That's from RAF dress regs: AP 1358, CHAP 1 Para 0126.

    Each capbadge in the Army has its own dress regs so it would be handy to know which one was bothering the OP. For example the RA (as are, I'm guessing, most) regs state:
    The SCOTS wear a Tam O Shanter so have their capbadge firmly to the left (the surplus 'flap' is always on the right in the British Army, allegedly because of the slope arms position being on the left shoulder) and I can't find any mention of correct positioning in the Rifles' dress regs.

    You mean Para attached arms? Most Parachute Regiment soldiers don't have overhangs anymore. It's so 1980's and lands you with extras from the RSM. TBH the worst unit I've seen for it is the Rifles.

    I second what Fally states, on HERRICK 10 the Rifles Berets, hair and appearance was a fu**ing disgrace!
