Default Beret For ID

Can anyone identify the nationality of this dark green beret? Can it be dated from the label, and cloth headband?

No idea !

But found this :

Quote:
This beret was a private purchase from a civilian manufacturer and not a military issue item. Sewn on the inside liner by the manufacturer is a beige coloured label. Printed in black letters are the words "Regulation Pattern, G. A. Dunn and Co. Ltd., London and the Provinces." The beret is undated and does not list the head size.
