The beret looked nice, but was not practical as outdoor gear; in winter
you froze your eartips off, and in summer you got nice sunburns on your
neck and your eartips. I think that removing the beret was the right
thing to do, although it is weird to salute without headgear.
I used to be a screaming bat.
