Post 1953 Junior Officers forage cap
In 1952 the khaki beret was replaced by a dark blue beret which had different coloured "half moon"cloth backing. The RCASC had a yellow backing. These berets were unpopular with the troops. In a couple of years, the coloured backings were removed and replaced by smaller cloth backings in the shape of the cap badge.
