Having seen a number of people choose to wear berets when in No.3's, (No. 3C ?), it does strike me that one has a choice of headdress in a shore-establishment. So it does beggar the question, do you prefer wearing berets or caps and why? I personally prefer the cap, because it instantly identifies me as a matelot rather than a bootie, pongo or brylcreem boy which all tend to favour the beret. But then again, can so many people be wrong?
