    Austro- Hungarian buckle help

    Hello . Are Mannlicher rifle clips ?
  13. Hello Gentlemen I just remembered a Argentinian Army officer . certain Lt Colonel Enrique Rostagno who in the year 1904 was commisioned as observer in the Imperial Russian Army HQ then fighting with Japan . perhaps another officer was commisioned in the Imperial Japanese Army at the same time and later transferred to Germany .and is not impossible that he received the surname the Japaner . I promise to search about the subject
  14. Hello . Interestingly the officer appears to wear a Saxon 1907/ 1910 officers tunic with eight matt kronenknopfe closing the front and with the characteristic Saxon cuffs with two buttons. The Kalpak and the Shoulder Boards slightly pointed are turkish . also the belt buckle and the dagger.
  15. Hello : The German influence on South American Armies was great, inclusive in countries like Peru , Brazil and Uruguay .traditionally linked to the French Military . The first Nation to call a German Mission was Chili in 1885 . about the armament ,German Mausers were ubicuous .
  16. Hello : In that case , the presumptive Argentinian officer must had been a visitor .
  17. Hello : Not only Staff officers , and not only as visitors , the Argentinian Army of the first four decades of the 20th Century, send many officers in service commision to the Imperial German Army , the Reichswehr and lately the Wehrmacht Heer. these officers were incorporated into a German Regiment during a year or more in some case, and served as regular German officers. gaining expertise . they weared Argentine uniforms or at least for photos . I think that on duty at least they wore German ones
  18. The Prussian : The officer is probably Argentinian . the Argentinian Army adopted beginning in 1909 German style uniforms including the grey greatcoat with blue collar .the peaked cap was blue with the band in arm of service colour and carried on the top the white and sky blue cockade and on the band the emblem of the unit . the four point pip was the emblem of the War Ministery if gold and of the General Staff if silver. the rank was carried on the shoulders as shoulder tabs , PS . the officers cockade was of 25 mm of diameter and made of a string of celluloid beads white and sky blue ,rolled to form a circle.of course the troop cockade was a simpler one of stamped enamelled tin
