Meet Mr Christopher Flansburg

I don’t usually portray customers of South Pacific Berets, but there are exceptions to any rule. These pictures are of Christopher Flansburg, from Maine.
Christopher got his first beret some 35 years ago, serving as a paratrooper in the US military and added a second one when becoming an MFO in the Sinai Desert in 1985.
Since then, Christopher has been working on boats; mostly on sail training ships and tall ships. 
His free time is divided between his BMW R90/6 with sidecar (1975), the blacksmith forge at his farmhouse in rural Maine and his fly rod.
Great to see a man wearing a beret so naturally, pipe and facial hair included!

  1. I've known Chris since his first beret was issued in 1983. No head has been fit to wear a good looking beret, of any type!
