I have seen a fair few early postwar berets recently. What do you make of this? It was stated as Recce Corps but that was disbanded in 1946. It is certainly an officers beret. I know the WR used such a green backing. Perhaps the Officer was late of a certain corps or regiment.

Thanks Jerry, It's hard to find many period photos. From looking at WR photos they changed from khaki around 1955. I am

curious about this beret. Also some regiments surely used Khaki berets after ww2, such as mounted infantry. despite junior officers didnt senior staff officers continue to use a khaki beret postwar (maroon if late of airborne)?
