    and in Korea with the A&SH:


    A 1950-dated dark Blue Royal Artillery officer's beret:

    Nice hats there.

    While the badge is British is the beret British?

    Know it has the Broad Arrow but not seen that maker before?

    Hmmmm... I'm pretty sure it is British - aside from the badge/colour etc. - I don't believe any other country uses/used imperial rather than metric size measurements!

    Sorry to be pernickety but the cap in the photo worn by the A&SH is actually an American pile cap. The British combat cap was not issued until 1953.
    The beret is definitely British - one of several manufacturers of midnight blue berets.
