Those caps look almost exactly like the berets that German armored vehicle crewmen wore in the 1960s, which were actually covers for a hard hat. Similiar caps, but much fuller, were worn by German tankers in the 1930s, too. I believe, however, that in the 1960s the cap only had a single rosette instead of two and was the same as the one worn on all the different field caps.

Except these caps are not berets, but the standard pre-1919 German Army enlisted man's forage/undress cap, which was adapted from that worn by the Prussian Army since the Napoleonic Wars.

I may be getting a little off theme here but:

First World War. top Cockade would be the Imperial black, white and red while the lower cockade would be in the State colours.
