  1. British Indian Army cap badge from WW2

    Well , solved my mistake.
  2. Hello : The Prussian , Yes Sir ! . Ostuf , The three men in the first pic (ampliation ) are from left to right, Prince Boris , General Jekow and General von Steuben. its curious the use of tropenhelme by the Prince and another Bulgarian officer.
  3. Von Roques Maumont is a nobility family of French origin . one branch via Switzerland settled in 1760 in Celle and their members provided officers to the Elector of Hannover
  4. Lieutenant general Nikola Zhekov (1864 1949 ) was first minister of War in 1915 and then Commander in chief of the Bulgarian Army (oberbefehlshaber) from1915 to 1918 due to the fact that King Ferdinand I resigned his prerrogatives and appointed the General
  5. Hallo : I read the same as ixhs Oberbefehlhaber etc . but the manner in which the name of the bulgarian general puzzled me .commonly the name of the bulgarian Chief of Staff is writed as Jekov or Jekoff . even Schekoff.must be him
  6. Ostuf : The German 11th Army when was deployed to the Balkans with HQ in Prilep . was commanded By General der Infanterie von Winkler and later by General der Infanterie Kuno von Steuben . The name number 2 appears to be Bulgarian .
  7. Yes Sir ! and a British one . not a Putilov
  8. British Indian Army cap badge from WW2

    Thracian : The badge is not Indian . Its Canadian from the Highland Light Infantry Of Canada .observe the maple leaf in the center , the scroll and the beaver.
  9. Its possible , wurttemberger officers were interchangeable with prussians .
  10. Ostuf , Thanks for your answer . as i suspected ,the regiment 93 was not a common one . The Kavallerie Schuetzen Regiments were dismounted Cavalry .the German Army began in 1915 to employ cavalry in the trenches and in 1916 to dismount regiments .then appeared a new type of Cavalry the Cavalry Rifles . their regiments were of bataillon size , three or four squadrons ,equivalent to infantry company in number and a Machine Gun squadron with 6 Mgs and four minenwerfer . apart ,normally the regiment possesed also a mounted platoon of 25 men . The 93 K S R judging by the number was a unit raised from the 93 kavallerie regiment which was a war raised unit . i will search about the 93 .to me it was a Landwehr unit .
  11. Ostuf , To me is also Werther but what is strange is 93 kavallerie regiment . doesnt said anymore ? Landwehr Reserve or Schutzen ?
  12. Dante : The 9th JzPferde regiment was deployed in Ukraine between May of 1918 and the Armnistice.After a slow retreat returned to his garnison in Insterburg in good order the 22th of Februar of 1919 . then it was disbanded . If the FreiwilligerBtl was organizes in Insterburg probably the JzPf was the base
  13. The blue and white lace is the Bayerische kragenborte.exclusive of the Bavarian Army if you look closely you can observe that the colours are in lozenge shape. the bavarian collar lace was not weared during 1914 it was introduced during 1915 and later was reduced to the front of the collar
  14. filfoster, The Colonello in command of a Brigade weared between 1916 and March of 1918 on the cuffs a rectangular insignia made of silver lace of about 12 cm high and 4cm wide .placed over a green grey patch . from 1918 onwards the rank was renamed Brigadier and the lace on the cuffs placed on a red cloth patch. the three silver stars surrounded with gold corresponds to a colonel in command of a regiment .if the whole is placed over red cloth .Take a look to : Gradi del Regio Esercito Wikipedia.
  15. Gentlemen , The officer portrayed wears the type of feldachselstucke .introduced into the Prussian Army for the campaign of 1866 . later these shoulderboards were used with the service dress . The Landwehr cavalry weared blue and not light blue tunics and interims rocke .with the interimsrock litzen were not used . the pic is from between 1866 and 1889 , judging by the type of SBs but the EK II situates the date more precisely between 1870 and 1889. A 1813 EKII is exclude by way of the age of the officer and his rank
  16. Ostuf : For more data go to www denkmalprojekt .org 2 garde feldartillerie regiment is in German but with a little help you can find much useful data there
  17. Canaris no , he was a smaller man . perhaps and only perhaps Doenitz .Leutnant z see until March 1916 . when the war erupted he was on board of the Breslau . much later he requests his transference to submarines .
  18. Truppenubungsplatz Juterbog .or Juterbog West also Schiessplatz Juterbog . is the place were the photo was taken . The garnison of the "Garde 2 FAR was Potsdam . Today still exists military facilities in Juterbog . During the Empire the the Artillerie Schiesschule was relocated in 1890 from Berlin to Juterbog ,65 km south west from Berlin .
  19. Trying to recreate an uniform

    Morar Andrei ; Please if you contacts with Domnul Diaconu , comment with us
  20. The six men with a MG wears a lower cockade on their cap bands which appears to be bavarian of one of the models in use ,that is white with a light blue center . but they not wear the bavarian collar borte .
  21. Its possible ,judging by the officer who appears on the right of the photo ,on his collar is clearly visible the bavarian borte .apart his portepee or swordknot is the oval shaped bavarian model .
