  1. There are not perpetual misteries , the type of number remembers me to something yet seen , Austrian not , certainly not French . I will made a bit more of research
  2. Take a look into German Daggers Forum .Imperial collar patches and SBs section . and will be able to observe the variety of types of numbers and monograms
  3. What says Weitze in the catalogue ? The Litewka with dove grey patches is of the Air Service I imagine due to the fact that the arm of service colour of the Air Service was light grey but the medium blue backing of the SBs dont match .
  4. And also announces his caps as Free of front pressure
  5. Hello ,the badge is called the Rokiski , or Roquisqui for the name of a certain Mr Rokiski ,of Polish ancestry who in 1939 redesigned the Aviatiors badge first designed in 1919 . The badge was designed by Infante Don Alfonso de Orleans ,his wife and two officers of the Spanish Aviation Captains Kindelan and Herrera . the inspiration is Egyptian .the red sun and the wings of a Ibis . from 1919 to 1931 it carried over the Royal Crown ,from 1931 to 1936 a mural crown , then a red star for the Republicans and for the Nationalists a ST john eagle . In 1939 again Crown but open topped , this lasted until 1975 . from 1975 to today is used again in his 1919 model

  7. Hello Nack , Hard to say but one of the main manufacturers of caps was EREL Robert Lubstein ,look inside your cap ,a makers Seal must be . another manufacturer was PEKURO this one has as trademark a dispositive in the front of the sweatband that minimizes the pressure over the front of the head . search for it with care .
  8. Hello F , Once ,thirty years ago I served for a short time in a Transmissions squadron of the Argentinian Army under the command of the then second Cavalry Brigade . the squadron operated with M113 armoured vehicles .well I discovered that the use of breeches and riding boots was very comfortable inside the vehicle .It was against the Regulations but the squadron Chief was my friend and soon he do the same . And the Brigade Commander ? well ,He was a Cavalry Officer before being General and only smile
  9. Its possible ,the Romanian medal ribbon was wide yellow with blue and red narrow borders . and if he served with romanians ,more reason to think that
  10. Hello Chris ,Achselbande are the two plaited pieces of your pic . Achselschnure the two cords that ended in the metallic pencil like pieces
  11. Hello Viscountless , I guess that you want to know if the oficers braid and the NCOs and enlisted men were the same. well they were not . the Oficers braid was in many cases highly decorative ones , inclusive the more simples designs . the NCOs and enlisted men ones were basically the same type for all Regiments entitled to wear braid . in two variants ,the so clled Grenadier litze that showed on the plate posted by arb and the so called Garde litze ,that was the same but double . existed a third variant called old style , this was a simple bar pointed at the rear end . It was not much used
  12. Hello F , Present day military uniforms are a misconception . they are manufactured with almost no other parameters than supossed economy ,practicity and protection thats the Combat ones . the everyday ones were generally speaking drab and plain . Regarding the practicity of the old uniforms you must think that they were tailor made for officers and senior NCOs in some cases and in the case of the soldiers were at minimum adapted to each man by regimental tailors in consequence they fitted well on the body and felt comfortable . after all the old uniforms served well
