To me they looked more like the paper sailboats we used to fold when we were little to float in puddles.  However, I'm sure their some kinda traditional hats, made outta something other than paper.  Perhaps if there's an expert in the milner arts, they can enlighten us.   Cheesy

Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...
