You are bidding for an authentic Royal Malaysian Army Special Forces Ranger Beret. This is not a reproduction item and is the real authentic beret used by this unit. This Beret shows the red flash which has a tiger teething a dagger of the 11th Commando Regiment of the GGK (Grup Gerak Khas) Special Forces Unit. This beret is the latest pattern after the unit re-organization in March. The old beret pattern with the tiger and wreath is no more in use. I sold the last of the old patterns out on Monday. This unit is well known as the Tiger Of Malaysia for their bravery in action in Somalia, who were part of the United Nations organized multi-national rescue team that broke through rebel defence in Mogadishu to rescue trapped US Army Ranger in the Southern Sector of the city during the Black Hawk Down incident. The beret is made of 100% Tropical Tempered Wool specifically designed for combat usage in the hot jungles of South East Asia. Unlike the traditional knitted wool berets, this one allows the scalp to breeth making it very comfortable to dorn in the tropics. The beret is brand new and has never been worned before. It is part of my military hats collection which is in my glass display case. I am liquidating and selling off my military hat collection because I will be migrating back to the US soon. As much as I would like to keep them, I can't bring them along.
