Berets, Bonnets and Such...

This interesting picture was sent to me without any further details, but it clearly depicts berets and similar hats.
Nr.5 is the typical small diameter French beret, while Nr.6 seems very much a Basque or Bearnaise shepherd, wearing a larger beret to protect him from the weather in the mountains. Nr.7 is without question a Chasseur Alpin wearing a 'tarte'. 
All the other hats have some likeness to the beret, but are not (although it's hard to tell re. numbers 1 and 2) - I guess you'd call them bonnets and sailor hats.
