Fire Fighters (2)

I had a short post on berets used by fire brigades in April, 2010. At the time, I wondered how many fire fighters across the world used berets and since then, I collected a few more samples.
Interestingly, mainly from Germany. 
Un-stereotypical, the German fire brigades seem to have no national standard; the berets come in a variety of colours and models, some with firefighter-related badges, others with the badge of the regional council.
There are a number of manufacturers/suppliers of uniform berets in Germany, like Kempf, Hoernke and Pfeifer
 If you are a collector of these kind of berets, check out the web sites; some sell directly to the public.
