    Looks like 1945 to me. The wartime berets were larger in diameter than modern berets but am not sure of the exact date that they changed. Compton Webb still make berets as far as i know.

    Any chance of a bigger pic please? Also can you show all of the beret? Have you tried damping it as that often brings out the markings a bit more clearly.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    I had a good look at this beret and you will see on the picture that shows the badge there is a slider pocket sewn on the beret, so post war, if I remember rightly the seller has it as a 1950s beret, John.

    My guess is mid-fifties, most certainly not from WWII as it has a slider pocket.
