I am watching a movie right now called the giant 1836 Spanish army and they wear big berets like that only red I don’t understand why they would hide in the bushes with his big red beret and think they cant be seen its kind of funny
It was the Carlists (mostly basque) and they wore those red berets to avoid friendly fire when battling the Castile army, who wore even bigger hats but were of opposite color.


I posted about that movie here. Loved it. Was a trip to hear basque spoken.

I’d like the yellow tassels on the officers hats
