    You are also to find many different models; in Belgium different makers equals different details !

    Here is a 5 th regiment shako with his cover!
    If you ever have the opportunity to visit the militaria fair of Wavre, you will find there a very qualifyed person collecting and selling Belgian pre WWI stuff.
    He can tell you all about it.
    I don't think he is to be found on the web!
