Swiss Soldier

There is a bit of a discrepancy between the number of Swiss visitors on this blog and customers of South Pacific Berets versus the posts on Swiss berets.
I tried hard, but no, I found very little material on Swiss beret wearers, unfortunately. The picture above is a fine exception: a soldier in winter uniform with a huge beret, similar in looks to the French tarte. No date or further information available. 
In the One Off section of South pacific Berets you'll find a small number of Swiss military berets.  

These berets are made of two pieces of black felted wool, fitted with a cotton lining and faux-leather headband. The size is 58, but easily fits a size 59 or small 60 as well. An unusual military beret.
