    If you are talking Samalia in 1993, then white Tilleys dyed a greenish hue were used in that region.

    As far as I know the UN Blue tillys were not worn in Somalia as it was a "Peace Encforcement" mission. My friend who served in the CAR in Somalia has one of these (that he wore) but as far as I know it was not in Somalia that he wore it. I will talk to him tonight and see what he says. As for the greenish dyed ones, thats 100% correct they were used in Somalia '92, '93.

    UN Blue Tilley Hats

    Could have been used by a Canadian on any UN mission from 1995 until at least 2008. These hats are still in the supply system and I have imagery of one being worn by a Canadian in the Golan Heights in 2008.
