I would say #1 resembles me a glengarry more than a balmoral (though they are "relatives", of course)) smilies-23

Thank you guys for the information. The attachment is supposed to be a Balmoral, although not from the Army.

Are there any other types of "weird" headdress used by the British Army?

Hasn't the US got rid of the beret pretty much? Its a curious piece of headgear, actually. /Luke

Far from getting rid of it, the beret is now standard in the U.S. Army Service Uniform: http://www.army.mil/asu/

I thought that the US Army stopped using the beret both in the field and in garrison; I was obviously wrong. Another question, the horizontal stripes on the right arm of this guy, denotes what? He has a lot of them!

oversea service stripes. each represent 6 months so 5 years total if I'm counting right.
