  1. Very nice. can you show details of the shoulder straps and collar? It looks wonderful
  2. Drain the bants ive never seen that tunic.... show us more... of the tunic
  3. The buttons on the breast and boards appear the same size on mine. I can measure but I’m sure several on this Forum know the button size by memory.
  4. You have the trousers for yours, near impossible to find Now this Württemberg Ulan Rittmeister wore a fancy Litewka too nice collar
  5. What’re we drinking there? This collection room is having a Laphroaig
  6. Sure seems odd, I can’t imagine doing it myself but I have OCD about a lot of little things, the way I put on a belt is one of them...
  7. Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
  8. I think it’s more likely that one would encounter silver stars on generals uniforms, especially early war. I would assume available stocks were silver and many generals would have used pre-war stars or stars from their personal uniforms and possessions.
  9. The question of gold or silver stars and when the regs changed has plagued me for decades. Some french collectors have told me it was the generals choice while others have told me the color changed to gold post ww1. ive seem tunics and helmets with gold stars that I felt likely were ww1 period.
  10. Does anyone have general staff or war ministry uniform items.
  11. I’m not sure of the regulations but I think it was an order to simplify rank insignia. However, it was not completely adhered to. I’d have to research and not sure which in my books discuss this so o have tried to look. I was hoping someone would answer this for us.
  12. I think cuff rank was dropped by many after 1915, not sure when for certain.
  13. I don’t get it... can’t find anything that rhymes... anyway, it’s a very nice tunic but not sure about the price. But, enlisted and NCO tunics don’t come around often....
  14. Well.... I shan’t finish the joke... Anyway, IR112 was the best Regt between IR111 and 113
  15. .... who may have worn this tunic in the war. Baden IR112 NCO tunic that appears close to issue yet it has to be private purchase imo.... nice quality but seems expensive
