This article will provide the reader with a description of the term ‘crap hat’, and its association with berets and peak caps. The article will then move on to the history of berets from a military perspective, with an outline of the pertinent facts/dates rather than being a definitive account. Next, the article will discuss wear style and individualisation in the wearing of berets before moving on to Regimental and Corps beret colours and adornments. Finally the article will provide some links to some ‘tongue in cheek’ stuff.
