I have a 1943 Kangol beret in my collection for some time now, no badge unfortunately. Looking at the indentation that the badge has left on the beret, I guess that it must have been an AAC one.
Looking at the holes left by the removed badge... I count 4. This is more clear in the lining.
Adrian Stevenson had posted one of his vet acquired berets, with the same 4 holes seen and a photo of the vet wearing the beret, with an AAC badge on it.
So, my question is: Are there AAC badges with 4 lugs or were the holes created by different badges?
PS: The photos are in the "Cloth headgear" section, but I don't seem to be able to access it, in order to post the links... Will do it as soon as I can!
