I was under the impression that British military dress regs stated that when wearing a beret, the badge must be postioned over the left eye. In the last few days i've seen a couple of military programmes where the badge has been worn over the left ear. Young Soldiers: 1 Rifles Officer and 1 ranker Sandhurst The Bomb Squad: 1 RE Sapper (Commando trained). And those are just a few examples, I have seen more, but forgotten where. Is this some kind of new fashion and is it tolerated by the RSM's and RP's?
