    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 .
  2. 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 .

    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 .
  7. Hello : a fantasy with the appareance of a royal bavarian coat f arms
  8. 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 .

    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?

    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 .

    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 .

    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

    Looks like the white Russian General Anton Denikin 1872 - 1947 . If not in any case is a White Russian General Looks like a Prussian General waffenrock .inclusive the rare number of twelve buttons . but the Prussians used to wear the four inferior buttons ,unbuttoned.
  16. Double purpose . in the book Army Uniforms of World War One . by Mollo and Turner is a Photo of a Austrian officer carrying a mix of walking stick and weapon . the stick ends with a russian bayonet . many German officers carried batons with heavy ironed ends.
  17. Some time ago I heard in words of a military attache . After all we (attaches ) were not other thing than an acredited spy .

    Japanese visor hat

    My pleasure . Original Imperial Japanese Army visor caps , side caps and uniforms are scarse I believe .
  19. Trooper : The uniform of the Swedish attache is the 1906 model . the first modern field uniform of the Swedish Army . it was in grey bluish cloth . with blue collar ,cuffs and the facings of the three cornered hat .

    Japanese visor hat

    Dolfek : The Japanese Army adopted in 1930 the model 90 service uniform . this uniform was khaki and comprised tunic with stand collar ,trousers or breeches and peaked cap for officers and men alike . these peaked caps were WW1 era style . with model 90 uniforms the arm of service was marked by collar patches in different colours .red for Infantry ; green for Cavalry ; yellow for Artillery etc.The 98 uniform was a modification of the 90 model . It was adopted in 1938. The peaked cap was retained but in different shape more modern . the collar patches in arm colour dissapeared and were replaced on the collar by rank tabs . Only the troopers of the Imperial Guard continued the use of the peaked cap . and the Military Police . the majority including officers used as service headgear the well known and unique Japanese cap .
  21. Kronenknopfe , at first sight , and the lower cockade is definitely not Bavarian .
