Sorry to disagree with Steve and others but the cap being worn by The Glosters in the photo is the U.S. "cap, field, pile". These were used extensively by troops of 29 Brigade during the first winter of 1950/51. The wartime ski cap as mentioned by Steve was worn in Korea but later - e.g. by Royal Norfolks in 1952 - and referred to by them as "hats, horrible".
