I just picked up an Austrian UN pale blue beret which bares many similarities to the British wartime and 1950s berets. (Photos to follow).

The badge is embriodered but not the surplus examples you can google. To me the beret seems late 1950s or 1960s, which would tie in with then they joined the UN in 1955 (source UN website).


Can someone help me find out about it. The only tag is a white and purple label with SS1 inked on. As I said, the lining style and leather sweatband look British in style and it also has a leather tab covering the vent holes.
