NCOs, Khaki Berets 2004

The khaki beret is a distinction of the Foot Guards. It was adopted in 1971 at which time most other units of the British army carried on with the dark blue beret. In 1983 some other regiments began to wear the khaki beret, including the Royal Pioneer Corps. The three men here are NCOs, from left; lance-corporal with the Guardsmans' cap badge, sergeant with sergeants' badge, and CSM with a Warrant Officers' badge. The badges are on Household Division squares of blue and crimson cloth.
