A bit of a bimble around the hills really . Nothing like SF selection,a lot get airborne qualified and use it as a stepping stone towards trying to get in the SAS. A lot of the guys stay for multiple tours forgoing promotion to stay at Hereford.

Just to be clear - are Royal Marine SFCs (who are Commando qualified and entitled to wear a green beret) foregoing their Marine and Commando heritage and wearing the Army SAS biege beret, while the SBS themselves are wearing green RM Commando berets with SBS cap badge?

I presume not. The SBS beret is Lovat Green, so attached pax (RM, RN, RAF, Int Corps, RLC etc, have always worn that assuming they are commando qualified - and that includes the R Sigs guys in the Sig Sqn). I also presume the same applies with the SRR's emerald grey berets - it certainly does for REME, AGC etc...

I'm glad I'm not on selection at the moment. It was -19° in the Brecon Beacons last night.
