This photo purports to be of a Belgian Carabinier from WW1 . However, he appears to be wearing a top hat! Can a Belgian member explain? :( Phil B

This is correct.

The Belgian Carabinier had indeed a hard leather or felt tophat with 1 side up.

It was his typical headgear..

There is a famous picture of them.

I am sure someone will post him.
