    Why did the SA get rid of headwear?

    Why did the SA get rid of berets for scouts and cub caps?

    They only had to be worn in meetings for flag break and/or grand howl and are useful when out and about as a group. It does look awful when groups are out in uniform but have an array of different hats and baseball caps. The cup cap itself is a proper iconic English cap not like the horrible American baseball caps that now are an option to uniform. The uniform really isn’t complete without a cap.
    I can’t see cost being an issue as it was fine right up to the 1980s

    I realise that the SA is now obsessed with trying to look modern and trendy but this was a useful part of uniform and in my experience the kids love wearing them.
