Wearing the beret is not the problem, after all you can by one in the Scout Shop :lol: What is wrong is the wearing the beret badge. In this country if you impersonate military forces of the Police it is an offence. BTW, do you think that their motto is "Who Cares Who Wins" like all the Italian regi...

It was just an excuse to sell a few dodgy tunes written by the "still serving "in crowd" " Narrated by a complete T**sser Ooh - does th...

Yes, your right - Thats exactly what a LumiNod is. The idea of the flash is to let people know that you are in your first two weeks and if you are doing something wrong/stupid/dangerous you don't get shouted at tooooo much. :wink: The problems come on day 15 when you take them off!!
