    In 1976 I was part of a British airborne unit that completed a basic (Bronze wings) parachute course while attached to 272 Fallshirmjager Battalion. This beret and a Gravity knife were exchanged for a british army Pullover.

    A rather nice and in great condition, looks unworn to me, Bundeswehr Army Paratroopers (Fallschirmjager) red beret, dated November 1975, only Jagers, Panzer and Fallschirmjagers wore berets at this time, the rest of the BW adopting the beret as primary soft headgear from 1979 on....Berets were introduced in the late 1960's for those three arms of service only, the first pattern metal badges of these services was devoid of the West German flag motif which was added to all badges after 1979. see below for examples of such badges.
    Prost !Steve.

    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
    G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)

    I agree, I don't think this beret was ever used. Thank you also Steve for the additional information you provided.
    Regards, Barry
