Hello,

First you are very welcome.

Second, Rifle and Light Infantry Regiments started to wear Rifle Green berets mid 50's.

Thirdly, The first beret in the link provided is an 80's issue, and The Durham Light infantry wore Midnight Blue postwar before moving to Rifle Green, at which point they amalgamated into a "Large" Regiment The Light Infantry. Therefore this beret is incorrectly badged.

The second link is for the badge and hackle for the Royal Northumberland Fusiliers. This beret is incorrect and should be Midnight Blue not khaki as the Fusiliers all wore the aforementioned and continue in the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers. In fact this is the last Infantry Regiment to wear Midnight Blue at present.

Hope this helps,
Clay
