Pipe-smokers have often featured on The Beret Project; pipes and berets being such a natural combination. It's not just the wearers of the beret that smoke a pipe,  there are actually many pipes that resemble the pipe smoker.
The pictures above and below show a pipe used in the Great War (1914-18), depicting a Chasseur Alpin.
Below a briar pipe depicting a member of the French Paratroopers, typically wearing the small diameter military beret in red. 
And above and below a good Basque beret in a briar pipe, beard and all.
