BRITISH WWII ROYAL MARINES BERET.
A blue Marine beret of Naval contract with tombstone fixing behind the badge and a lack of covering to the eyelets. Attached is the original brass Marines badge. There are one or two nicks and small repairs, however the general appearance of the beret is excellent. Berets such as these would have seen land service during the many operations of WWII. This particular beret is clearly dated ‘1945’. Many Marines took part in operations vehicles and other support roles. Maker marked ‘Kangol Wear Limited’ sizde ‘6 ¾.
