Hey, I was recently at HMS Sultan and noticed some people with berets, I'm not sure if it was just marines that wear berets or not.. so if someone could let me know I would appreciate it :D

Only since 1974 when issued Used to get 2 caps. One working and one best.
Remember making bow waves in caps. Don't do that anymore they look like milk churns.

For sailors; Berets are normally worn in the forenoon watches being replaced by the White Cap atfer scran, the exceptions being Trafalgar Day, the Anniversary of The Battle of Jutland and the first Friday of the month when White Caps are worn reversed all day.
Bootnecks wear what ever matches their dress.
Hope this helps.

I fear you have oversimplified this matter a touch. For instance, if undergoing Guard Training during the forenoon, the White Cap will be worn to accessorize with the White Belt/French Knife Scabbard combo, and White Ankle Thingies. In this case, Berets will be worn in the afternoon (WEO dates as above). Other exceptions include (but are not limited to) Divisions Training, Divisions, Ceremonial Training, Ceremonials, Main Gate Duty, etc.

Just wear what you want. I'm a big fan of ska music, so for divisions I'll wear a nice black pork pie hat, but for just bimbeling around the dockyard, I'll just sport a beer dispensing hat. The choice is yours!
