What manner of men are these who wear the maroon beret?


They are, firstly, all volunteers and are toughened
by hard physical training. As a result they have
that infectious optimism and that offensive
eagerness which comes from physical well being.
They have "jumped" from the air and by so doing
have conquered fear.
 Their duty lies in the van of the battle; they are
proud of this honour and have never failed in any
task. They have the highest standards in all things
whether it be skill in Battle or smartness in the
execution of all peacetime duties. They have
shown themselves to be as tenacious and
determined in defence as they are courageous in
the attack. They are, in fact, men apart -- every
man an Emperor.
 Of all the factors which make for success in battle
the spirit of the warrior is the most decisive. That
spirit can be found in full measure in the men who
wear the maroon beret.
