    From the photo, which is not very clear on my end, the flash looks post-Vn, Korean made.

    Pic of the inside and any stamps/markings would also help.

    Hi all, sorry for the delay, i am over seas at the moment, there is a pic of the liner attached, its next to the other pic.
    The beret flash could well be Korean made but as you probably know the first SF flash was changed after Kennedy was assassinated with the addition of a black border so it cant be post Vietnam ??

    Flash was probably made in Okinawa where part of the 1st was stationed in the late 50's-early 60's. I've got a Canadian beret with a 5th group flash somewhere around here that was given to me many years ago. Interesting find.
