    Default 1st Field Force Vietnam Maroon Beret

    Hi all. Picked this up at a flea market. It seems good to me, i.e. that patch doesnt look newly applied or anything. Just a couple of questions though. Would berets like this have been worn in the field and does the fact that its maroon mean that it has an airborne connection? Cheers.

    This is not original, some kind of non military french beret with 70s era patch applied no good

    Codeba Berets have been used the American army and the Canadian army. I have seen other Vietnam groupings on websites with codeba berets.

    I am almost sure that these berets were not largely used the US army
