What is the dress for this (if any. Are former members wearing their berets or sweaters etc? Please let me know if others in the area are attending what you will be doing. Thanks.

Too far for this ex-member to get there, but the maroon should be represented. Mike was a paratrooper all the way and he'd want some of the credit to fall to the Regiment.
