A very nice-looking beret!
Books published to date... 'Belfast Diaries: A Gunner In Northern Ireland'... 'A Tough Nut To Crack - Andersonstown'... 'An Accrington Pal: The Diaries of Pte Jack Smallshaw, September 1914 To March 1919'.
I specialize in M1 carbines and Lugers.
thanks guys...im on a bit of a frenzy at the moment!
I have spent a lot of time over the years looking at WWII British berets and I have a few concerns regarding the beret you have posted
1 no double row of stitching to the white doted lines or near them
2 The WD stamp should be on the inside part of the brim and not to the center
3 the way the white lines run they appear not be a constant width apart
4 the width of the brim looks wrong for the period see below some out of my collection
I hope I am wrong Steve

I sorry to say that I also think it is a pimped and restamped post war beret. I hope you can get your money back. Any chance for ref purposes to see all of the inside and all of the underside of it?
Whatever its just an opinion.
Get a refund Tommi...
