Default French General's Kepi

Here is a very nice 1900s pattern kepi I have in my collection. This is for a 3 star general. This is a very attractive kepi with a semi soft top (my words)

Very nice, the french always knew how to dress up.........french uniforms are too underrated by collectors.

You are correct. Their uniforms are very attractive and the army was first rate until mid to late WW1.
