<< I was wondering if anyone has information about the old red Scout beret.
Specifically I would like to know when they were made a part of the
uniform, also when they stopped being official Scout headgear.
I do not know when it became official (though my 1980 Insignia Guide shows
them) but I do know it was in the 1989 catalog, and no longer in the 1990
catalog. Technically speaking however, the beret is still official Scout
headgear, as long as it is clean and servicable. It is simply no longer sold.
