I was able to find a picture from 18 October 2009 of the 32nd wearing the TOS (See Below). So now the date the regiment adopted the TOS can be narrowed down to between 2002 and 2009.

Thank you, Alan. That helps to further narrow down the TOS to post-2001.

I was also in Kosovo around that time, but I dealt mainly with the Russians from the 13th Tactical Group in Kamenica.

On the last page of the thread that Leigh provided the link for, there are two PDFs for the Wire (1985 and 1986), which show members of the 32nd wearing berets. So, it appears the TOS was introduced...

I am sorry to come late to this discussion, but that tartan (especially that cut) was worn by the Perth Regiment of Canada. The TOS being Canadian supports this. The unit was inactivated in 1965. I...

Sapper,

I definitely feel your pain. I have glengarries that say on their labels that they are diced green, but I cannot see it. It looks black or blue to me. The only diced headgear where I...

Thank you, Bill
