I can’t say for France but I think that British troops place a lot of pride in their berets, with the colours and cap badge holding historical and traditional significance. There’s a hell of a lot of variation in colour depending on regiment, where I think the US Army only has 4 colours of beret? Also wearing berets instead of helmets is a way of appearing less hostile and more approachable for civilians.
