    Black armoured corps beret from the 1970's with the early type Infantry badge which seems to have been on it for a long time.

    I think the beret is a French made private purchase type popular at the time.
    I did some more research and found out that the IDF southern command special forces para engineers unit (now disbanded) called Sayeret Shaked wore the black para beret with infantry badge.

    The red badge badge backing shows the wearer has seen combat.

    Perhaps I should start my own thread on IDF soft headgear, but where to put it....

    IDF para beret 1970's/80's, French made, has the more reddish tint rather than the more commonly seen maroon shade, but this colour is seen on pictures, try a web search.

    Another nice one Jerry.

    I wouldn't start a new thread, there's no natural home for a thread like this and I don't think anyone is mortally offended by it being here.

    I'll have another one to add in a week or so that I picked up with a helmet buy.

    I have another to add, but no light to take pics until Saturday when I am next off work, plus some bush hats which I do have pics of, though should they go here or in an IDF headgear thread somewhere.

    I would throw everything in Jerry, it's limited interest (for now) and any one in the future will get a one stop shop.

    I'm going to add a link to the thread I started on the opposing teams head gear here as it may spark common interest.

    Back to the beret Jerry, what type of fixing does the badge have?

    It's an interesting beret, I think I'm correct in saying the maroon beret was used up to the 80's, then it went to the bright red when Givati and Nahal got there coloured berets. As you say yours is different colour to both being a French made one.
    As your picture shows mixed shades is not an issue, but this beret maybe for a specific unit within the brigade or the elite units.
