My understanding has always been that the uniform, although it may get
outdated, does not become obsolete. The spipulation to that is that you
can't mix and match (wearing a 1960's sytle shirt with today's pants).
I beleive that you could, however, wear the beret with any uniform,
while the field cap could be worn with only uniforms made of the same
I may be mistaken though, and please, if someone knows the "rule" share
it with us!

I heard a rumor that BSA units may opt to wear uniform headgear no
longer available through national. Can anyone comment on this, and, can
anyone tell me a source for the red scout berets or flat "field caps"?
The baseball-style hats just don't do it for me, and the smokey bear
hats would be a hard sell for my scouts. (too dorky) I like the new
wide-brimmed "slouch" type hat, but it's pretty expensive.
Thanks in Advance,
