  5. Hello gents, found this link recently that shows Albanian uniforms from 1912 right through to the communist era. Very impressive collection. http://www.gazetadita.al/fotot-shteti-shqiptar-ne-uniforma/ Although I cannot see any uniforms worn by the Albanian army after the 1943 Italian armistice. Did they continue to wear the Cacciatori d'Albania collar patches (red and Black) or reintroduce the pre 1939 Albanian green ones ? Dave.
  6. Hello, did the Ukrainian front /mobile battalions have the plain grey uniform or did some battalions have the police uniform with brown collars/cuffs ? Or both worn together in the same units ? Dave.
  7. Did the Ukrainian schuma (front/mobile units) have mainly grey uniforms or the police uniforms with brown collars and cuffs ? Dave.
  8. Hello, i would have suggested you look at this website- http://www.albmilitary.com but unfortunately it became defunct in the summer of 2013, which was a shame as it had a lot of information and photos. You could try the Albanian armed forces museum , Forcat e armatosura muze, email - aqfa@aaf.mil.al , i have emailed a few times but keep on getting a "failed delivery " message, perhaps you will have more success. Dave.
