Good Evening All

This is A GENUINE UNIDENTIFIED POSTCARD. These chaps remind me of the members of her grandfather’s lodge in “Peggy Sue got married”

Close examination shows numbers on some of the headgear.

I'm turning in now but before I do, I have to say, in my case, I am finding the new look forum a lot faster, cleaner and less cluttered - I hope it stays this way in the future.

G'Night All.

It's the annual get together of the Toulouse branch of La société de chapeau ridicule.

I'd love to know what it is, but unless we can dig up some French Centenarians with what may be rather esoteric knowledge I suspect we're going to strike out on this one.

My first thought was Masons, but the symbol on the hat insert looks like a building frontage, possibly the one they're posing in front, no obvious masonic symbols on display.

Second thought was some kind of supporters club but none of the terribly subtle understated rosettes match so more likely prizes for something rather than indications of sporting allegiance. One of them seems to have "1083" on its ribbon, no idea what that signifies.

* Belatucadrus*, on first glance it looks like something out of a Student's Rag Week carry on, but some of the chaps seem a little long in the tooth for that!

All equal winners in the daft hat contest as per Belatucadrus
