this isn't intended as a cheeky comment but is there any reason why para berets are moulded completely different from most other berets.

Because their heads are shaped like penis's?

What a daft question.
 
FFS!!! Can you not look at the other 156 threads on this topic!! The 157th gets a little boring!!
 
I was told that it was because of brass plate inside the beret that holds on their capbadge (scratches the forehead you see), I was also told from some old and bold that it was shaped in manner as to keep the sun out of your eyes (from Aden apparently).

Or it could be just field fashion. You choose.
 
So we dont look like hats

Well the Royal Irish manage to do so with a 'Caubeen' which is gaelic for 'sleeping bag'

Esprit de Corps
Surely the colour of the beret, cap badge, history and all the other stuff a unit has enables Esprit de Corps?
Yep, they all add to that, plus I'd add tradition and national heritage - but that's not what he asked.
