    All is A ok in my little kingdom
    I saw this Beret on ebay altho the lable says it is a 2er REP one im not shure if it is a pukka one as the lable is not the same as the one you posted


    Good to hear your ok Mate.

    That is a very interesting set up, I seem to recall (though for the life of me, I can't remember where I saw it.. might have been a French forum) the label in this particular Beret may well be a "legion custom tailored jobbie" ( I do not know the correct terminology right now!)
    But again I am sure I have seen a label like this before, I would not discount it in any way, In fact I would be keen to get my hands on it. I got a legion Beret from a Swiss seller last year, and I have a feeling he might have had another one with a unit specific label like this, I didn't go for it as it was 3 times the price of the one I purchased.


    Apart from my failing memory, and grasp of written English,it's good to talk mate!
    I will ask around some of my French contacts,and see if they can shed any light on this mystery item. Smile

    I may even bid on the one on ebay

    Thanks for the tip/link Graham, 15 euros for a Legion beret is not too cheap, but then if you can go through the Pompy shop, I wonder how much the exchange rate will bring the prices down?

    I've got a few Berets from a French ebay seller, I haven't looked on his site lately, so can't say he that he has got any legion Berets in stock, but he is super cheap.

    If you want Mate I can PM you his account details Wink

    Hi Gary
    That would be apreciated but by going through USMC there is no shiping costs as they get your stuff in on their regular resupply from Paris.

    Wow,now thats a blast from the past-USMC,had no idea they were still going.

    Back many many moons ago before Ebay and even the internet USMC used to stock some AMAZING items and had AMAZING catalogues as well.

    Went through a stage of keeping all old cats etc but pretty much had to bin loads in the end but pretty sure I still have one or 2 of their catalogues stored away somewhere.

    Hi Gulf The UK shop is now called UKMC now and they do'nt stock any french kit now but if you give them a ring they will get stuff in on their regular resup from their Paris store so no shipping from France and I live near enough to go collect so no UK shipping. And their catalogs are still pretty cool.
