Brigadier/Colonel parachute/airborne beret
« on: August 18, 2018, 12:27:35 AM »
1950's brigadier or colonel rank private purchase maroon beret for parachute regiment or airborne forces.  Made by Moss Bros with the awful see through sweat diamond known for going a funny brown colour and becoming sticky, typical of wartime and early post war officers head gear.

Jerry,

Very nice.. I always think of Sean Connery in A Bridge Too Far wearing his beret as Roy Urquhart.. One of my favorite characters in the movie

If this could only talk..

Very nice...

Indeed on all counts.

I watched a bridge too far just the other day.

A shame this beret was not named as to have this rank in the 1950's he must have been a veteran of WWII.
