It really is taking the p*ss. The Royal Hussars are forced to wear pink berets and the Army Dress Committee make the "Paras" wear pink berets. Don't they realise how embarassing it is for what are after all pretty good, steady, average infantry soldiers, to be humiliated in this way. I even heard someone call them "CAMPHATS" the other day. Its beyond a joke, especially when no member of the "Paras" would dream of being scornful about other people's headdress. Lets hope the word "CAMPHAT" doesn't catch on when describing the airborne brotherhood. I'm sure they'd take it in good humour, but it would still be pretty unkind. What about an ARRSE petition to the Army Dress Committee to persuade them to change the "Paras" berets to something less camp and more tactically suitable - maybe dark green, khaki or even dark blue wouldn't be as bad. Come on, stop giving our CAMPHATS a hard time. And please, please, please: dont call them CAMPHATS.
