  1. Looks like the red has faded past pink--you can see some traces it was a Württemberg cord.
  2. Bavarian 10.IR marked items, photos, u.s.w


    • WANTED

    I am looking for anything related to the 10. Infanterie Regiment during the period 1914-1918, though I won't quibble if an interesting item from before the war is offered. Photos, gear, insignia--even cockades and basic Bavarian items that will help complete my display are welcomed. Gear marked to BDIII, unmarked Bavarian made gear, and the like. If you have photos, I am open to trade with other Bavarian and some Prussian photos at hand. Depending what you have and what you want. purchases may be more practical than trades.


  3. Most of my boys. The cross is the only piece out of place, with no better home in my cases. Like Chris and Chip, I am always seeking variants.
  4. This was so reasonably priced even with postage I took a crack at it. A very well worn Bavarian Leib Major. This weighs a goodly amount for its size. I like to think it was on the overcoat of an officer who was active near the lines.
  5. Could be a heavy Gesso, which is the type of coating used on smoothing out wood and canvas for dolls and artowrk. Looks like it was found and done up decades after the war based on the damage and inside.
  6. My Bavarian children. I keep turning them up in black; there are three here--a fourth resides with a friend. My feldgrau one is likely repainted in recent years, though I got it out of a collection in Germany. One brass and one steel came out of the US, the rest all came to me from overseas. Note the varied construction styles and the period repair to the one with the tab. Omitted mention of the blue souvenir tin in the above photo--it is a full sized Bavarian device mounted to a Gem Razor, UK, shaving set.
  7. Double the Trouble; a pair of trainees, Bay. 10.IR, dated May 1915, Ingolstadt.
  8. Here is my frog, marked 149 | BD III | 1915 The idea of a "necktie" detail being a Bavarian detail is news to me, and exciting! I think I have seen them and been told they were not German.
  9. Unusual Buckle ?

    The one to the left may be a Rolldorn private purchase variant. Looks like that belt on the right was put on upside down.
