What Nationality Does this Uniform Indicate?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

can anybody tell me to what country this soldier/this uniform belongs?

Somebody suggested Switzerland. Thank you!

Could he be Italian?  There's a certain effortless elegance about him- although the cap might not be quite right. It looks like he's a cavalryman.

Thank you very much gentlemen!

Based on your information someone familiar with the uniforms of the Italian army just told me 1st Italian Engineers Regiment.

GreyC : Its hard to say . the mostrina (collar Patch) is not visible . shoulder boards also not are carried on the Pastrano (coat) A closer view of the cap badge may help.
