    By this date the Midnight Blue beret was almost universal throughout the Army. So it could be more or less any Regt or Corps, aside from Para or RTR etc as they retained their own coloured berets.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks for the info.What i planned to do is put a badge back on it for display but i dont know what..as i said the original badge that was on it has left an impression that is roughly circular and it had two fixing lugs.any suggestions to which badge would be good?and as its a 53 dated beret it would have to be something with a queens crown?!

    NCA, Essex Regiment ...just off the top of my head, so to speak. The Middlesex Regiment, there are quite a few that have a Crown and would leave a round impression
