I thought with the exception of Paddy Mayne, at the time of Normandy all SAS wore the maroon beret?
Surely it can't be his!!!

Four hundred quid is an awful lot of money to just throw away.

Awful beret as fake as a US$2 bill. The SAS originals and other old hands from
were unofficially allowed by Paddy Maine to wear the sand beret in 1944/5. On period pictures you see mixed wear majority maroon but some sand. But certainly not this one!!!!Cheers JB.

I find it a bit of a worry that a surprising number of people seem willing to simply throw their money away without any forethought whatsoever.
