WW1 Uniforms...all nations

Recommended Posts

Thanks Chris, I was real lucky on this one - I walked into a local antique shop here in Eureka, CA. I jumped on it when I saw the Dress Blues, made the owner promise to get the photos, and name (note: name in the caps, etc). Store Owner told me grandson sold the items. There is a special story on the Captains photo - I purchase it back in 1991 from a junk man (who had a contract to go though the local garbage, before it was hauled away). Unbelievable. I still need to try to run down the grandson, to see if anything is left. I missed Schermerhorn's enlisted visor cap (it was on a shelve). Cheers Captain Albert

That is a more than fantastic group!!!!!!

Those are very very nice - and complete uniform displays. I really like the Italian, we do not see much of it. Also it is so difficult even in the US to find WW1 footwear. Thanks for sharing, Cheers Captain Albert

26th was the only Div that had different helmet badge for each regiment (other than 2nd div)

Hmmm. What about the 35th and the 89th Divisions?

Thanks for the info - I believe that this is a Captains uniform as it has gold bullion stars - NCO's had the bone white stars? Sorry - its not my plan to sell it at any moment soon.... but if the creeks rise as we say...

Now that is a beautiful tunic. You never seem to see WWI Austrain uniforms. What a pleasure to see!
