  1. new member here- hello!

    Welcome tsand 77 !
  2. With your permission : In every war , the propaganda ,was very active and sometimes ,war journalists or inclusive the officers dealing with the public information incurred in suspicious practics , perhaps the two cars were captured near Wilna but a year or more later one reappeared as a capture in the Romanian front . The Germans used in the Romanian front with good results their own armoured cars .only three , a Erhardt ,a Daimler and a Bussing .
  3. Austro-Hungarian unknown uniform

    Andrei : Until 1909 the service and field uniform of theAustrian and Hungarian infantry was A dark blue Bluse with collar patches in regimental colour , in the case of the Honved ,red .the field cap was grey blue , the same colour the tight trousers .to me your man is a Korporal (tizedes in hungarian ) of a Honved infantry regiment . between 1900 and 1909 . he carries a Mannlicher M1895 rifle , he wears a shooter award .
  4. Hat badge 1WW

    My pleasure .
  5. Hat badge 1WW

    Hello : Its a shako plate for the Royal Hungarian Honved . of the 1897 model .(curved sides ) the last model was the 1911 with straight sides .and more higher . the first model was the 1869 wich was round in shape .
  6. Austro-Hungarian unknown uniform

    Andrei : They were Infantry regiments .One the 2nd was a Imperial and Royal Infantry regiment of Hungarian ethnicity and uniform .the other two were Royal Hungarian Infantry regiments . all of them regular standing units . not second line troops .excuse me a mistake the regiment with the 3rd bataillon in fogaras was the 23 rd and not the 21th .You wants to know about the participation of these units in ww1, well its not easy . much of the history of the Austro Hungarian units during the ww1 was lost in the aftermath of the dissolution of the Empire .some regiments have their history recorded ,most no .one form of search is the study of the campaigns beggining with the Serbian . probably due to the fact that four Royal Hungarian Divisions took part in the attack against Serbia the two R H regiments fought in Serbia .The other alternative was the Galician front . against Russia . Finally in 1916 when Romania invaded Transylvania surely these Regiments fought against the Romanians .
  7. Paja .the Argentinian officer name was Francisco Fasola Castaño . Artillery Captain .The correct name of the Chilean was Fernandez Pradel . Fasola Castaño is on the third row ,the second from the left . Fernandez Pradel is on the mddle row ,second from the right .
  8. Named French group WWI and interwar period

    Egork.a : There were three types of star , bronze ,silver and gilded silver .the bronze for citations at regimental and brigade level . the silver for divisional level and the gilded silver for Army corps . the bronze palm was for Army citation and the silver palm for 5 citations at Army level . Gardes was citated at the order of the direction of the Medical service of the 10 th Army Corps .in that case corresponded a gilded star but not a palm .
  9. Named French group WWI and interwar period

  12. Studio photos. RPPC.

    Hello Farkas : The german cursive is not my favorite but what i can understand is name and adress of the postcard destinatary a Herrn Wihelm Kasten , Frankenstrasse 5 Hamburg . The remitent is a nephew of herrFranke and writes the postcard in Greiffenberg . the date is April of 1915 . the remitent one Walter R is very suscint .perhaps some with better knowledge of the old handwriting could obtain another data .
  13. The Prussian : Austin chasis ,yes . but not Austin type armoured body . Apart ,the hull is undoubtly of Russian manufacture ,perhaps the car supplied to the Romanians was a single unit model .
  14. Keppi

    Well , i will continue some research
  15. Keppi

    larsson : Its a french kepi ,but i am not sure of his character, militar ? Policial ? . Please said me : The braid is silver or gold wire ?

  17. Austro-Hungarian unknown uniform

    Andrei . The Brasso ,Brassov , Kronstadt city was garrison of the Royal hungarian Honved Infantry Regiment 24 .whose recruits were of the surrounding country .But the 2nd imperial and Royal Hungarian Infantry Regiment was also garrisoned in Brasso ,Brasso Kronstadt. and recruited in the same area . In 1914 the ethnicity of the regiment was 61 % Hungarians , 27 % Romanians and 12 % others.Another Royal Hungarian Infantry Regiment garrisoned in Transylvania ,Ardeal ,Siebenburgen , was the number 21 . whose 3rd Bataillon was stationed in Fagaras ,Fogarasch .
  18. Hello : a fantasy with the appareance of a royal bavarian coat f arms
  19. Morar Andrei : To me its is not an Austin . yes i know its registered that the Romanian Army used one Austin 3rd series . but the body of the car pictured is not common . The 3rd series Austin were twin turreted. all the Austin Putilovs too . the car pictured shows one turret and centrally placed .
  20. Austro-Hungarian unknown uniform

    Hello : the man pictured wears the uniform of the Austro Hungarian Army used prior to 1908 for the field .for Infantry . Pike grey coloured cap , dark blue tunic . and not shown in the pic ,Pike grey coloured trousers .the two stars on his collar marked him as a Korporal .he is not an officer . his tunic with shoulder straps is for Rank and file . Being originary of Transilvannia ,probably he belonged to an Royal Hungarian or a Imperial and Royal Regiment .(hungarian ) Do you know of which town or city they belonged?
  21. Ottoman Soldier 1860s

    The man in the photo wears a officer type jacket but carries a rifle and bayonet .and the percussion carbine , dont matches much with the bayonet .other strange item is the turban ,dark coloured . enfin , it appears to be a studied exotic portrait .
  22. Bringing History to life...

    Alex K : The button colour must be matt silver ,and i not mentioned the red piping at the front of the tunic .Excuse me this omission .
  23. Bringing History to life...

    Alex K : I discovered your posts just yesterday . Its a great Job , very well done . but could be better ,not technically but in accuracy . one example : Max Immelmann was officer of a Technical branch so he weared the uniform of that . In field grey , black piping on collar and cuffs , kronenknopfe in matt silver grey , and silver litzen over black patches piped red on the collar . The capband was black piped in red and red was the upper piping of the crown of the cap . If you need some assistence regarding uniform details . ask freely .
  24. Bringing History to life...

    This one is a musician .keep in mind that .because Musikmeisters ,Obermusikmeisters and Stabsmusikmeisters carried special shoulderboards . and collar patches . the colour of the patches was according with that of the unit to which belongs the Kapelle .Yellow for Air , red for Flak ,white for Hermann Goering , black for the RLM and so on
