  1. The darker cloth of the collar was a feature of the 1915 Bluse. I prefer to think that after the War altough Prince Leopold weared uniform in public in many ocasions he chosed to wear Bavarian ones, The pic date is after the 4th March 1918 . the Prince received in these date the Great Cross of the Iron Cross he is wearing on the pic
  2. I am not able to read the text but the ilustrated example is of clear Red Army inspiration with the Swastika as Mongolian Characteristic national Symbol .
  3. Many Thanks Tony ! for a while i thought in a Cavalry uniform , Austrian Hussars by the blue collar stripe but the absence of the shoulder cord gold and black over the left shoulder of the Bluse signals Infantry .I asked about the lagermutze cavalry type because cavalrymen carried on the left side the Letters D or H followed By a number .
  4. Hello Gentlemen , The peacetime backing of the SBs was only rosen rot , the same with the 1907 10 Field Grey uniform. It was with the 1915 Bluse that all Prussian Dragoons Regiments adopted a cornflower blue Shoulder strap for NCOs and Men piped in the old Regimental SBs colour . the Officers shoulder boards were underlayed in cornflower blue with a inner piping in the regimental colour ,Rose red in this case. Another point about the Pic and the uniform. the Absence of the Bavarian Borte on the collar reinforces the presumption of the Prussian Dragoons n 7 uniform M 1915
  5. A rare subjet but I thik that they weared the same rank insignias of the Red Army in their first version They were close ties with the Red Army who helped to expulse Baron Unger von Stemberg and the filo chinese Mongolian chiefs
  6. Tony many thanks for share with us ! the Karls bluse is notable. complete with rank star and blue facing strip on the collar. a question ,the peakless cap have some letters and numbers on the left side ?
  7. Prince Leopold was Chief of the 7 th westfalisches Dragoner Regiment Feldmarschall Prinz Leopold von Bayern on the Pic he is wearing a Field grey uniform . stand and fall collar . they are not buttons visible so one tends to think of a Bluse . If it is the uniform of the Dragoons then the backing of the shoulder cords must be cornflower blue with a inner piping of rosa rot ,rose red ,the regimental distinctive colour of the 7th
  8. Hello Gentlemen , The Royal Greek Air Force pilot badge was in gold wire and very alike the bird sic of the RNAS. naturally with Royal Crown . In Republican times 1924 to 1935,the crown was cut off, but your badge is not of Greek Air Force,
  9. Stuka , Nueva Granada was a Spanish Viceroyalty created in 1717 that lasted until 1819 .You can take a look in Wikipedia about it. Viceroyalty of New Granada .
  10. Hello ,Republica de Nueva Granada was the name of a Nation of the North of South America which was created in 1831 and existed until 1858 being replaced by the Grenadine Confederation which transformed in 1863 into The United States of Colombia . Nueva Granada comprised today Colombia and Panama
  11. Curiously they not used Sutterlin .Regarding Volksdeutsche , Artur Plheps is a good example, Born in Transylvania when it belonged to Austria Hungary and of German ethnicity he was Imperial Officer in WW1 ,then Romanian ,reaching the rank of Romanian General ,he resigned for political reasons and when Romania enter in the War alongside Germany he returned to the military but inside the Waffen SS as all the Volksdeutschen who chosen not to stay into their national armies
  12. Stuka , appears to be original and in good shape But ,always are points to clear , the reinforcement of the frontal peak looks like copper , rare . the spike looks as gilded iron sheet in the lower part and bronze the cone . finally i can not define if the eagle is made of iron sheet painted grey or if once was gilded .well thats my thoughts .
  13. Peter , do you know these Artillerymen method used to fire . one shot short the other long ,then you divided the diference between and the third shot must fall certere . Well ,we need the one who made bullseye The field is Spain and there options are Fabrica de Armas de Toledo or Fabrica de Trubia .
  14. Of course, the Savoyan Knot could relate to de Sardinian Dinasty or to Savoia Carignan Branch ,punctually ,Prince Eugen Of Savoy Carignan the great Feldherr in Habsburg service . I searched for portraits of Sardinian and Italian Kings looking for Marshal batons .no finds
  15. Hello Gentlemen , South American sword ? I not believe, Argentine , Chile , Brazil ,Bolivia ,Peru , Colombia, Equator and Venezuela and Uruguay ,used French or German types of swords and sabres . Your sword is much alike to the Spanish sword sabre ,sic Puerto Seguro .in use since 1903 . with variants . or perhaps is a Canadian variant of the British 1908 . It looks as a very well made piece of good materials .
  16. Carol I , As I explained before the title of Maresciallo d Italia was a creation of Mussolini naturally under the Savoia Dinasty Reign . Two of these Marshals were Armando Diaz and Pietro Badoglio. Both batons are conserved and were of Ivory with gold fittings ,covered with dark red velvet and with Savoia crosses on the body . silver crosses .
