Hello tony , The men of the mounted Artillery ,carried sabre and pistol . The man in the last pic wears rosettes and not stars , probably due to the dark shade of his uniform he is policeman .

Hello everyone,

This is my great-grandfather, a Galician Polish from Lwow/Lviv. This is 1915, Feldpost 200, K.u.K 17 Korpskommando. What can be said abut him from the uniform and badges?

 

Thanks and cheers!IMG-20190404-WA0001.thumb.jpg.22d0dfe7019381d130cc45b7decd6a09.jpg

Hello, your great grandfather wears Austro Hungarian Army uniform , the cap is that of a officer. He wears also a Karls Bluse , a model of field coat allowed to officers and  officials. altough his beard obscured the collar ,on it appears to be either a star or a rosette and behind that a strip of cloth in regimental colour . his coat is without shoulder boards ,another officers feature. he carries a sabre ,not a infantry officer one , its a model for officials. the badges on his cap are unidetifiable. the black armband possibly is the mourning one for the death of Francis Joseph  I .weared after November 21th of 1916 ,

Helo Bayern, thanks a lot for the info. This postcard was stamped in 1915. Another noteworthy death being mourned in his unit maybe? I'll sty to obtain a scanned image (this one is a cellphone photo) to visualize the cap badges better.

Saludos!

Yes! He is Antoni Kwaśniak (1870-1943). Before the war he worked at some ministerial office in Lwow, and moved to Warsaw after the war.

Cheers,

Claudio

Hello cslamo, Your answer to Glenn inclined the possibilities to a Official , that is your great grandfather served in the AH Army as one . Civil servants weared uniforms also and in war time these were Pike or Field Grey.but the use of cap badges as in the Army was not in use among them. Regarding the Mourning armband, i have no other info apart of the concerning to FJ1 death.The Army Chaplains weared in service a black armband like that of your GG fther . but Chaplains either Roman Catholics , Orthodox Catholics , Protestants ,Jews and Muslims all weared on the cuffs golden rank stripes, those of the Hungarian Honved with lace trefoil over the others.

Claudio,

he does not appear in the officer/official lists of either the k.u.k. Army or k.k. Kandwehr. I am assuming he is a Landsturm military official. That does seem to be a rank "Rosette" on the collar as worn by officials as opposed to a star worn by officers.

Regards

Glenn
