    Sgt. Kohlmann's Uniform

    he is "Feldwebel". The medal is "Militär-Jubiläumsmedaille 1848 - 1898" (Jubilee medal 1898 - 1898). The pic was taken in Josephstadt. Therefore it would be possible that he was a member of IR 36 which had "blassrot" (pale red) as regimental colour. Regards Christian

    Hungarian Order of Saint Stephen

    You can see that the quality is not compareable with that in the pics. It seems to be a late collectors copy. Regards Christian

    Austrian Balkan Wars 1912-13 cross

    No, there are different versions. Regards Christian

    Austrian military merit cross

    As you can see the miniature star of the grand cross is mounted on the knights cross of FJO which is part of his medal bar. The owner could not change that when wearing the breast star. It is evident that the breast star was just worn for the purpose for taking the pic. Not really correct but no problem at all. Regards Christian

    Dear Tony, the decoration on the trousers were worn by hungarian Honved infantry too. And as far as I remember by all hungarian troops, infantry of the regular common k.u.k. army included. Kindest Christian

    Mounted 7 place bravery and campaign bar.

    I must confess that I do not why, but it was common style for esp. hungarian officers in the Habsburg army to wear the swords upside down on MVK, Iron Crown and order of Leopold. I have seen it very often. Kindest Christian
