  1. Hello, Of course is an interesting item. I think that the man was part of German Military commisions more or less disguised .
  2. A very good example of the Austro Hungarian M1908 Feldkappe in Pike Grey colour. appears as without use . the peak has a leather made rim ,this was a feature of Officers and senior NCOs Field caps . but your cap bears the rosette, for troopers and NCOs. Rosette not cockade , with the Cypher of Emperor Franz Josef I. The cap belonged to a Common Army or Austrian Landwehr unit. the Hungarian Honved rosette bears the Cypher 1 FJ . the two segments of cord on the left side were to fix the Feldzeichen , Field sign . a branch of oak in summer and a fir twig in winter.
  3. VJK , Austrian Bundesheer General with the first type of uniform . very like the German Reichswehr ones. the man is a Cavalry or Artillery officer as his sabre shows

  8. arb und Grey C , In the German Empire ,a Federal Empire , existed four Kingdoms,Prussia Bavaria Saxony and Wurtemberg . each with the respective King. But existed also the Great Duchies , Baden Hesse Darmstadt, Mecklenburg Schwerin and Mecklenburg Strelitz , Saxe Weimar and Oldenburg. each with their Great Duke ,Gross herzog , that counts as a Sovereign. existed five Duchies and seven Principalties ,each with a Duke or a Prince , and finally there were three Free Cities , Hamburg Lubeck and Bremen that were Republics with a President of the Senat ,at the head. contrary to whar arb thinks in the German Empire the Grossherzogin of Hesse counted as a Sovereign .
  9. Hello, very well made to be a fashion item ,and the Royal Crown was not a trivial symbol .
  10. Hello, Strange one, appears as a Royal Navy officers cap badge, but It lacks the anchor into the oval . Officers of the RNVR and the RNR both weared the anchor , and surmounted with the letters RNR or RNVR ,
  11. Hello, the last pic shows a Field Officer of the Garde Jaeger . The uniform appears to be a Kunftige Friedensuniform , and the transversal stripes under the Shoulderboards denotes a retired officer,
