Default Introduction of the Multi Terrain Pattern Beret

The Army Dress Committee has recently approved the introduction of a beret in Multi Terrain Pattern (MTP) camouflage to be used in the field on operations and training by all arms when helmets are not worn. The beret, made from MTP cloth, may be fitted with a cap badge in either blackened/bronzed metal or in a subdued cloth woven finish. To protect the properties of the MTP camouflage no coloured badge backings are to be used.
Defence Equipment and Supply DE&S 1A(PR) Abbey Wood have produced the detailed technical specification document for manufacturers and it is expected that issues in a standard range of sizes will commence during Q3 2024.

The fact that I started to believe this post shows how little faith I have left in the decision makers of the modern Army. Nice one Tim - thank God it’s 1st April!

Very good Tim! What an absolute waste of money such a move would be!

Kind Regards,

Pete

I fell for this initially - my thought was "How very French".
