wearing beret

#1
does anybody know the regs/rules on wearing beret whilst driving military vehicles? ie can you remove it on long journeys ect, cheers

I always thought you were supposed to keep it on unless carrying out a reversing manoeuvre, because one's vision is limited on the right due to the 'flap' encroaching on ones peripheral vision.

Clearly, that doesn't apply in Germany, or when driving LHD vehicles!

Queens Regs clearly states: As soon as the military vehicle has left the main gate ... beret off, light fag and foot down. Remember to sign worksticket when you get back.

If you are driving any vehicle fitted with military number plates you must be in full uniform ie head dress on at all times.

Maybe that's why the tankies used to have those 'both-sided' berets. :wink: So that they could reverse without a front marshaller 8)
Wah! Known as a "Two-way stretch"
