British Beret with Pompom

I found this picture on the web site of the East Riding (Yorkshire, UK) Museum. It is dated 5th June 1944 and was taken by well-known Bridlington photographer William Foster Brigham, who had photographic shops at 15 Promenade, Bridlington and in Middlesborough.
An interesting combination of a beret and the pompom as worn on French sailors' caps.
Any information much appreciated!

  1. It seems to have an insignia of sort on the left side... military maybe? It could be some kind of scottish beret (Tam or Balmoral, I never could ufully understand the difference) with a "toorie", as they call the pom-pom...
