    The problem with a hat as an optional extra is that then you lose the point of a uniform which is to make us look well umm uniform. if one or two Scouts are wearing hats and no one else is it would just look odd.

    Quite right, it's just my feelings towards it. I associate the beret with you guys and the cadets that marched in our Remeberance Sunday parade looked very good too (and marched properly curse them! )

    As we've mentioned the Remeberance Day this may be a good point to what you've said, not sure about at the HQ but I guess it wouldn't be worn during activities anyway.

    I'm one of the starry Centenary scarves' only fans but I'll be glad to see the back of them because some did and some didn't on Sunday.

    Surely thats what Scoutings about. Wearing your uniform with pride and getting badges?
