    Arctic Convoy Berets

    Hello,

    I'm trying to source a white beret for a vet from the arctic convoys - I've tried Silvermans but they are out and will be for months. Is there anywhere else you can suggest?

    Am I also correct in thinking that the cap badge mounted is the one for his rank, or is there a special capbadge as well?

    Cheers in advance.

    The white Beret can be purchased at the Merchant Navy Association website shop. It cost £9.50. (Also the Russian Convoy Club Badge at £8.50. is available)
    Here is the link:
