    UN beret

    Post by loski on Sun Mar 18, 2012 12:27 am


    I picked This Un beret and badge up on ebay for £5.21 including shipping
    the label although faint reads
    100% wool
    Dry Clean Only
    Size 3
    there is no makers mark
    the badge is in exelent condition no chips to the enamel, the beret is quite faded and it has never had a liner although there has been a stifener stitched in the front this has been replaced by a bit of green plastic on the whole not a bad peice.

    Nice, I have a few of theese badges but sadly only 1 UN Beret.

    Theese are wuite common here in Canada however, because our Military does ALOT of peacekeeping operations. Smile

    Hi Graham.

    I like your UN beret Mate very nice, I only have one of these in my collection, this one is a New Zealand issue beret, and I was very lucky as I only paid a pound for it from a car boot sale. Wink

    Thanks Graham, I was going to buy one off ebay, from S Frankish, who is fairly cheap.

    I got this one over this weekend gone, bought a load of kit of a stall holder, and this was part of it Wink

    I had one, but it was misappropriated.I'll bet, however, that that NZ wool is finer than most. Sharp!

    Well, *stolen* is a strong word. It was left at a friend's house, and he just never felt a strong desire to return it, and after a while, I didn't have an overwhelming urge to get on his case about it... so... meh. Wink

    (I use softer language for situations such as these).

    And-- good luck with the job. Exciting places and interesting people... always a good thing.

    Just found my beret stash(50++) and amongst them are 2 unknown nation UN berets,very old and well used!!!!

    The beret with the badge has a strange circular pattern to the crown,as if it was made by being spun-is this common i wonder to any particular Nation/Country as to help ID it?
