WWII Polish-French Beret

Found on a Czech website selling 'military antiques': a Polish military beret from WWII, made in France.
Not only is the beret fitted with a beautiful bayadère multi-coloured lining, it also carries a Basque label prominently displaying the Basque lauburu, an age old Basque symbol that looks very similar to the swastika adopted by the Nazi's (many centuries later). 
And of course, this is a Basque beret (with the cabillou in place) converted into a military beret!
