    Excellent! Now that's a bit of history I did not know.

    One of these days I'll have to take some better pictures of my own collection. Not nearly as impressive as yours, though Smile

    Hello

    Happy to see that you appreciate my berets. I'm collecting since 25 years , and often the most difficult it's not to find berets but documentations about it.
