    Green: Afghan National Army and Air Force. This can be seen in a dark green and a lighter green color. Coloration depends on manufacturer.



    Example of light and dark green berets being worn by ANA soldiers.



    Green beret being worn by Afghan Air Force Oficers.

    Maroon: Afghan Army Commandos and Airborne. The Commandos have been seen wearing maroon berets as well as green berets. Not sure if the maroon denotes being assigned to an Airborne or SF type unit.

    Female Afghan Airborne Officer wearing maroon beret.

    This is a work in progress. If you have any information to add, feel free to do so. If I have missed a color of beret, please add a picture if possible and as much information as you can. Thanks!

    Just got a nice surprise in the mail from a friend still deployed that did some trading on my behalf. Unfortunately they are unissued but still happy to have these.

    If you want to see any specific details let me know.

    Cheers

    Arch, in the second photo, the soldier is wearing your "mystery" impractical ANA LBV.

    Afghan commando beret

    Nkomo,

    Depending on what you have in trade, I've got a spare Commando beret with insignia. Also brought back a few sets of the new ANA camo with all local made insignia. Two of those are for a Commando. Those are staying in my collection but I can send you some pics.

    I would love to see pics of your uniforms. What would you have to have in trade for a Commando beret?

    Beret trade

    With my US collection spanning Civil war to current and international around 180 countries, I'm pretty flexible.

    Left a note in the intro area re posting pics. Just took pics this past weekend of all the uniforms currently in my collection, including one ANA woodland style and 4 of the new camo, all with insignia that I will be happy to post.

    This beret is was sent along with the other two berets I have but it has padding between the liner and maroon felt. I wanted to show the label. All three of these came out of Ghazni Province.
