    Hello tony , War games ,but i dont see Germans , only Austrians
  4. Chris , In post ww1 Germany existed a great number of organisations and societies aimed to the rescue and preservation of the memory of the combattants of the past war . In fact the Old Army was not disbanded until the summer of 1919
  5. Hello Chris , Perhaps its real action before the Wood was desvastated entirely. the man with a flamethrower indicates that the photo was taken after February 1915, probably from May to August . The Argonnerwaldlied was a song of the Pioneers, who were operators of flamethrowers
  6. Beautifully faked, or a post WW1 kameradeschaft badge of ex soldiers of the KB RIR 16

    Hello ,interesting enough , the lancers are in fact Hussars and in some number , thats was more current in the eastern front were cavalry was deployed at regimental level .
  9. Hello Farkas . The men on the first pic are Bavarian Light Horsemen . which regiment '? hard to say but ,existed eight regiments two with white facing colour , two with carmine, two with madder red and two with pfirsich that is peach colour. the collars and cuffs appears as lighter than reds and obviously not white . then could be peach used by the third and sixth regiments one with gold the other with silver buttons and etc. the third was garnisoning Dieuze .
  10. Hello , Grey C . I got to post, it shows me the last pic and I saw then I write , later I discovered that you had writed before . Hello Grey C .Thanks for your answer . and regarding the Saxon , I wrote without having see the top of the pic
  11. Hello , Prince Henry of Prussia the younger brother of William II was a enthusiastic of the cars and races , a flyer also .Prince Waldemar washis eldest son . he was haemophilic . althoug he served into the Navy as his father .thats was for a short time . his disease prevented him of real service . Another form of service was to volunteer with your own car . The uniform of the Kaiserliche Freiwillige Automobilkorps ,was as all reglamented . perhaps for influence of Prince Henry ,the uniform was connected with tthat of the Schutztruppen linked with that of the Navy .
  12. Hello tony , as ever ,your photos are interesting . This time i center on the Obermusikmeister .the man with the fiddle in the center of the first pic . Why? because in another pic he wears the slouch hat of the Schutztruppen .the colour of his waffenrock appears lighter in tone than the others . the dark facings on cuffs and collar made me risks that he was part of the Togo Cameroon ,Schutztruppen who used red facings.
