HC Deb 08 December 1986 vol 107 c87W
Mr. Greenway

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what headgear mounted officers and troops are required to wear on mounted duties; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Freeman

For ceremonial duties officers and soldiers wear the head-dress appropriate to their full dress uniform. For non-ceremonial mounted duties all personnel are required to wear a protective skull cap of a pattern approved by the Army dress committee and complying with British Standard 4472.
