  1. I?m very glad to see, the photo is very interesting for the other gentlemen. For me it?s like a deja-vu to the german forum. I?ve heard a lot of different countries, but no result... Anyway, I took a few close-ups of the particular soldiers. Rick I agree with the spanish uniform. But the only book about international uniforms is the Kn?tel. Here?s the first close-up
  2. Hi Rick! Oops, that?s a good result. I?ve got an canon lide25. I think, I will have a look for Epson scanners later... Well, a lot of people say, the one is from Switzerland. That could be. But I don?t agree with your spanish one. I think you mean another one? "My " Japanese has defiantly asian eyes, and (I think so) a japanese field cap. I see a german 07/10 jacket but with a magnifier I recognize a button upon his left collar. (Not a german "Gefreitenknopf" - this one here is right in the front)
  3. Hello! Here is my favourite Uhlan-photo. It shows a Vize-Feldwebel. Ul-Rgt. 5 (D?sseldorf)
  4. Hi, Paul and Rick! I try to make a closer shot of the photo. Unfotunately I can upload max of 70KB...The original size is 1,3MB to see all details. Yes, It must be a wartime photo, because of the helmets and the iron crosses. (They won?t have served in 70/71...) Here?s the photo again: (It caused a lot of confusion in several german forums...)
  5. Hello! Is anybody there to help me in identifying non-german uniforms? I?ve got this photo, I think it shoe an international control mission. Mistery is the asian one near the middle with a japanese field-cap and a german field jacket 07/10 with swdish cuffs. Any ideas? Thanx in advance!
  6. Well Rick, the only way to indicate the unit are the numbers at tghe collar. The early Landsturm units had a number, which shows the Infantry-Brigade, which set-up the Landsturm unit. Later they became a Roman number for the army corps and an arabic number to show the unit of that corps. Becaus of the swords, please don?t forget, at the outbreak of the war, a lot of Landsturm units had parts of their civilien uniform, because there weren?t enough uniforms for all Landsturm units. So the men with the swords are NCO?s. Mabe tzhey served in a cavalry or artillery unit before? They could take the uniforms back home, so the ywore them in Landsturm unit
