    Yes, the Gwenn-ha-Du (meaning "Black and White) [FONT=sans-serif][*******#000000]has been created in the 1900s and the US banner was considered as a modern (and fashion) design symbol of democracy.

    The huge beret (la tarte, the "pie") is a good protection against sun, rain and snow. That's why it has been choosen as an headdress protection for those mountain troops.

    Those Famas are FELIN ones.

    You have to agree that Breizh is a great country despite their climate. I mean, it's the only place in the world where people managed to grow stones!

    I love Brittany so much, I'd consider getting that fake "Passport" !! Breton de coeur !!

    I knew it... My breton colleague couldn't answer me, so I was just suspecting it. Thanks for the confirmation !! I hope they make the "reverse" version. Charging forward !!!

    Thanks muchly for the FAMAS update, Laurens. I had read a number of accounts stating that the French Armed Forces were planning to replace the FAMAS completely. Now it seems as though it will be around for many years yet to come, in an expensive "tricked out" format.
