  1. Bringing History to life...

    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.
  2. 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.
  3. Some time ago I heard in words of a military attache . After all we (attaches ) were not other thing than an acredited spy .
  4. Japanese visor hat

    My pleasure . Original Imperial Japanese Army visor caps , side caps and uniforms are scarse I believe .
  5. 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 .
  6. 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 .
  7. Kronenknopfe , at first sight , and the lower cockade is definitely not Bavarian .

  12. Hello : Once i read that the Artillery of the Orange Free State weared Pickelhaubes .
  13. Why ? In pure common sense ,the badge was not like the pilot or observer one ,not even as a wounded badge .it was a conmemorative piece . Granted by ? I dont know . according to which statute ? neither know . In another sense ,how many Tank crewmen served in the German Army ? Roughly 20 A7vs and around 60 british Tanks were the number of German Army Tanks , thats implies at most 500 tankers how many survived the war '? and how many rejoined the Army or the Freikorps ? ,or war veteran associations ?
  14. Ulsterman : The first photo shows an Argentinian Army Colonel .wearing the full dress uniform of the NCOs School .the rank is carried on the braided shoulder boards . Three circular gold suns . over a disc of black cloth.and as a oak leaf motif braided in gold over the collar which carries too a serrated braid of gold . the circular badge on the front of the tunic collar is the emblem of the NCO s School .the badge like a gold and red cockade pinned on his right breast is the badge of the graduated Staff Officers.he is also a War veteran .The second photo is of a Honduran Air Force Officer .
  15. Trooper D : The officer with the strange hat is a Swedish one .
  16. Austrian uniforms

    Hello : The feldwebel , Ormester , in Hungarian , carries the 1861 model sabre for Infantry officers . Farkas : The Infantry NCo s entitled to carry sabre used the same model of the officers .all metal . certainly existed swords and sabres with leather scabbard , they were for the officials .
