    Spanish sword dated 1854

    Hello , My pleasure , perhaps exists something similar about Belgian blades . The German manufacturer Weyerberg Kirschbaum & co that exists today was a great manufacturer of blades and probably supplied the Belgian Army , as note ,today WKC produces ceremonial blades for France and Great Britain in the last case having the patterns of Wilkinsons. PS Excuse me , do you need tanslation ?
  3. Hello : the Prince was a close relative of the Romanian Royal family ,he was nephew of KIng Ferdinand I . His father was also first cousin of King Friedrich August III of Saxony the father in law of Prince Francis Joseph . He was also Rear Admiral of the Royal Romanian Navy .
  4. For a while i tought in Guido von Usedom but he died in 1925. Usedom also was awarded the turkish war medal , the other German Admiral present in Turkey was Vizeadmiral Johannes Merten but he died in 1926 curiously he was recognized by the Ottoman Empire as General der Artillerie . sugerence : Go to : Kategorie Vizeadmiral ( Kaiserliche Marine ) Wikipedia with some luck you can find something

    Mystery Medal - Potential French Navy Medal

    Yes , and the Mission is named Jeanne d Arc because when it was established was on board of the Jeanne d Arc R97 a Cruiser launched in 1961 with the name La Resolute . changed for Jeanne d Arc when comissioned in 1964 . she served until 2010 .
  13. Yes , and the manufacture is the same.

    Austrian uniforms

    bcalkins : Thanks for your answer, I dont thougt in foot jaegers. in mounted ones yes but the patch doesnt match. Regarding to the 1st Feldjager , according with Lorenz , the ethnicity was 62 per cent Germans 26 pc Czechs and 2 per cent others, Perhaps after the reorganistion of the year 1917 the Battallion was merged with a Hungarian one
  20. All points to a Red Cross Society , but which ? Its not Lithuanian , Estonian or Letonian . Danzig also no,Poland ? no too.Scandinivia ? another time No . The ribbon appears to be of the type used by women . Knoted . and the colours are rare, Incidentally those of the uniform of the QARANC Scarlet and Grey.

    Austrian uniforms

    A question ,The fourth cap looks as a cavalry one or mounted artillery . but the J1 on the patch puzzles me.Its not Dragoner Husaren or Ulanen . neither Reitende Feldartillerie. what means?
  22. Certainly , the only users of ghotic S were the schools .and the jager green colour points to mountain troops .
