I'm doing a figure to along with my ItaleriEuropean SAS WWII jeep:

This is about circa 1944-45 and I thought the beret colour was beige but in other places I've read it was Maroon at this time.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

TIA

Old Hands and 1 Sqn

Paddy Mayne and the other old hands of 1 Sqn disobeyed the directive to change to the Airborne beret and wore their sand coloured ones to France

As I said Chris it was Paddy Mayne and the older hands in 1 SQN that disobeyed the directive and wore their older ones. This was not universal and only applied to parts of 1 SQN. 2 Sqn were frequently seen in the ABN berets as were the newer members of 1 SQN. Both Sqns were operating jeeps in NWE
Cheers
