On of my passions are helmets but I got also interested in military berets. My special interest is in berets from The Netherlands and Belgium. Little by little I'm building my collection. What I like about Dutch berets is that the emblems used are standardized in size and shape. I think The Netherlands started using berets after World War 2, about the same time they started using British style uniforms. I could be wrong, so correct me if that's the case. Do not trow away a beret but contact me or send it to me. Besides information about the beret manufacturer I like to look for information about the units using the emblem on the beret. Most information I find by using Google, so it could be wrong, always use multiple sources to find actual information. I enjoy doing this and I include many links to related websites in my articles. Some of the links will get you to websites or blogs of fellow military collectors.
