On remembrance day.
NO!

The Service Dress hat is worn with Barrack Dress or when in Service Dress 'Undress', ie when no leather is worn. Or, indeed, in Combats, if you happen to be a SMIG!

In 'full' Service Dress, the No1 Dress hat is worn.

Stand fast the Parachute Regiment, the Irish Rangers (or whatever they're called these days), the Tank Regiment and any other lot that can't afford decent headwear.

They're not available in Army surplus stores yet so you need not worry.

Once available you 'll wear it with your G10, Berghaus fleece and foot and a half yard stare in a Wetherspoons.

Did you not receive it? They've done away with Regimental peaked caps of all colour and replaced them with a single khaki cap. You wear it with your capbadge though. Even the Para's and RMPz have to wear them! I suggest you tab in to the Q man and demand one Montag morning.

So we have a smart peak for fad 'best' dress and a khaki peak for barrack dress, and if combats are to only be worn in theatre/exercise where helmets are worn, where is the lowly beret resigned to?

Covvies for armoured types, at a guess.

In short, you will wear it when appropriate in accordance with your Corps or Regimental dress regs or when the Badge tells you too. This can usually be found out through Part 1 orders and company detail!
Good luck, at least its not called a cover yet!
