Five years of (almost) daily beret blogging. I recall thinking, some years ago now (like every so often ever since), how soon there would be nothing more to write about regarding berets. I have proved myself wrong, again and again. 
It really is amazing how such a humble piece of headgear, not much more than a circular shaped piece of felted wool, holds such a formidable place in history; worn by artists and scientists, revolutionaries and tyrants, pacifists and commandos, photographers, girl scouts, intellectuals of all kind and on both sides of the political divide, etc., etc.
A seemingly never ending flow of material to publish about.
Happy Birthday and let's see where we'll be in another five years!


  1. Happy Birthday, TBP!
