some one must have been giving the archives a real digging through. Imagine if the Beret was yellow!

I heard it was because green is the colour of para's eyes when they see marine's cap badges.

I think one of you should go back in time and confirm if this story is true or not...:wondering:

If this story is true then surely the "original" berets are on display somewhere?
