Term used by british paratroopers when speaking of any other regiment. Since almost all of them wear hats for parade etc. The Royal Irish wear dossbags on their heads as an exception.

Craphat is synonymous to: hat, hiraldo, haribo and harry (since he is also a hat)

Para Reg recruits are referred to as Joebags, not craphats. They might wear a cuntcap for a while but never a craphat.

Recruits might be “motivated” or “encouraged” to work harder so as to not drop out and have to become a craphat.

Those that stick with the programme and become members of the regiment are therefore automatically hateful towards weakness. It cannot be allowed to exist. Hence the hate for other regs, nothing personal harry.

All those cooks and clerks in the brigade that might wear a maroon beret are still hats, and horrendous ones at that.

7RHA(para) that like to call themselves 7PARA are also hats.

A maroon beret is therefore NOT the same as THE maroon beret or the maroon machine, maroon lid.
Tom1-Harry the hiraldo is a hideous HAT!

Tom2- Aye he’s a screamer mate, a fucking craphat.

Hat1- Excuse me, that is offensive
Tom1&2 in perfect unison-RUN AWAY YOU FUCKING HAT
