Maroon Beret

Get off your high horse pops.

I'd imagine his question is Int Corps specific, given the location of the thread, so no need to get your gurkha pants in a twist.

If its anything like other Corps', then it'll just be units within 16X, and training establishments if you are jumps qualified (although could be wrong).
 
#7
You can wear it wherever you like mate.

But on the head is usually the done thing.

Thanks Timble, that was my original impression, but i've heard that 4MI as a whole and not just 89 are permitted to wear it (granted you've done the courses).

Within 4 MI it's generally only those serving with 89 Section who wear the maroon lid. Anyone elsewhere in the Bn with Para wings wears their normal Regtl head dress.

Hang on a minute son, nobody wears that bad boy till they've made it all the way to the clothing store.

I have to admit that I lost mine with all my medals on the Atlantic Conveyor, my "replacement" maroon beret came from Silverman's. I got my medals replaced on EBay, you don't want to be improperly dressed at the bar on Armistice day.

Just waiting for my NDM to complete the set.

Even if qualified you usually only wear the lid when serving with that kind of unit, ie Maroon with AB units and Commando green with Cdo units (funnily enough). Otherwise it's our usual beret, esprit de corps and all that (notwithstanding Hereford).

Genuine Question, when I used to frequent the more "Bleepy" circles, a big deal was made of wearing various Berets when at training units. Has the (Int) Corps ever had such a hat fetish?

No. Generally people are quite sensible.
