  1. Tony : I relied only in my memory . remembering that the luftschiffers had a badge . but after verification i need to say that i was wrong the badge for the airshippers existed but was oval .but the badge on the ring still appears to be Naval .because the bird is facing left.
  2. Princess Marie Louise of Bourbon Parma ;first wife of the then Prince Ferdinand of Bulgaria . mother of King Boris and Prince Kyrill.
  3. Chris : Your mapcase is probably as i said , of a older type ,used by Austro Hungarian officers and cadet officers between 1880 and 1909 .made of black leather . but after the replacement by the tan leather type , your model continued in use .
  4. Gentlemen : Please enter in the site : militarie repliky cz .into the site ask for : offiziere kartentasche. and you will find the mapcase .
  5. Gentlemen : Probably the young man is member of a Freikorps air unit . and the badge on the ring ,to my view ,is the Zeppelin one
  6. A nice piece . It is certainly of German type , but without the knowledge of the marks ant stamps of the sabre is hard to said more .this type of sabre was carried until ww1 by artillery officers ,but also by some others . please post the marks .
  7. It dont looks German , the use of braided numbers was not a German practice.
  8. Gentlemen , They tempted me . some explications : Its not Russian ,because is made of poor quality leather, not German .the next week i promise to post a figure of a hungarian book .showing a kuk officer carrying the mapcase . and to finish , the last object posted is a tornister.
  9. Not common .nothing is normal , Bavarian Light Cavalry tunics but without collar borte . and modified cuffs . the piping appears white that is regiment 7 or 8 . the men wearing the bluse may belongs to the same unit . both the 7th and the 8th fought dismounted from 1916 to the end .
  10. Romanian soldiers in the Austro-Hungarian Army

    The participation of Romania in the WW1 on the side of the Allieds was a disaster for the country .Romania until the death of King Carol I was at the side of Austria and Germany . inclusive with formal alliance. but the King died and with him his policy. In 1916 Romania declared the war to Austria and invaded Transylvania .in the confidence of the support of Russia .and her great victory over the Austrians .the Brussilov Offensive. the offensive not destroyed the Austrians and the Romanians invading were repulsed and obligated to retreat then the Austro Germans invaded and occupied nearly all Romania . except Iasi .and forced an armistice . and a treaty .
