Vintage IDF Beret

These photos were sent to me by Simon from Australia, an IDF beret from his hat collection.

It may not be the best time to showcase Israeli military berets, but the beret comes with a story, much to do with "another occupation" of Palestine.

The beret was brought back by a British soldier in the King's Own Scottish Borderers regiment when he visited Israel in the 1950s, after his initial tour of duty in Palestine from 1945 - 1948.
