Not sure this is the right place but bugger it.Recently my brother attended a function at Hereford.While there he saw several odd and bods and a few questions popped into his head,so i wondered if there was anyone out there that can answer them.

Ok,while there he saw "regular" badged and SAS bereted personell,some wore the beret with a non SAS Cap badge but had SAS buttons on there uniform.There were also those with the SAS Beret,other regimental cap badge and matching Buttons.So whats the gen,are they "retired" troopers or "attached personell"?Why would they wear a Non SAS Cap badge on a SAS beret with SAS buttons??????

So he saw fit to inform you about the mix and match, but not the colour of the boathouse?

Bad drills, ol' bean...

Sounds like B Squadron, they never had more than one full set of No2's between them.

The SAS beret is issued not awarded. If your part of the sigs, drivers etc that support the combat troops you'll get given one.

Millets are doing a crimbo special apparantly, buy one get special membership in two.

There are numerous permutations of capbadges and funny coloured berets. Uniform isn't always uniform, if you catch my drift.

didn't realise that they (them) wore regimental buttons on their north face jackets :wink:

did they bull up their berghaus walking boots aswell? good drills if they did, being smart soldier like types that they are. 8)

They were at a function, but people were wearing berets? When you say buttons, are we talking No2 dress, mess dress or some wierd (ahem...fictional) form of civvies where you wear regimental buttons? What sort of function was it? Very strange. Could he have meant SAS badge on stable belts, so perhaps the signals regt?

Is your brother walting it up? Why was he there?

He attended their Rememberance Day Parade as a Guest of the Widow and Sister of One of the Officers that was killed in the FI conflict(Maj Hamilton M.C.) who was a school friend.Definatly not walting it up.
