Card: “blue beret – U.N. pattern
issued to 48th personnel serving on United Nations duty in the Far East and Cypress”

One of a complete collection of regimental headdress with the exception of the feather bonnet (present elsewhere in museum). The original Glengarry from 1892 is still standard to the present day only construction materials have changed. The Balmoral style headdress was introduced in 1914 to regimental service and only construction materials have changed.
