  1. Are there any coloured photos or illustrations of the dark green uniforms worn by the Serbian state guard and Serbian frontier guard 1942-45 ?
  2. Hello Bayern, thanks for replying, seen the photo you mention , very useful.
  3. The Branko Bogdanovic book "Two centuries of police in Serbia" mentioned the gendarmerie were due to get an updated uniform and insignia by 1941, but it was only partially done. Anyone know what the 1938/39 insignia/ uniform were to be used ? Army style collar patches replacing the narrow pointed patches, removal of piping on cuffs/ trousers? Soft crowned officers style caps for all ranks.
  4. Hello, would the eagle and wreath police arm badge be issued in 1943-44 to the police volunteer battalions/ regiments ,comprised of ethnic Germans from Banat ,Yugoslavia ? Or no police arm badges ? They were given full German citizenship in May 1943. Polizei freiwilligen regiment 1-3 Serbien , formed May 1944 , 3 regiments. Polizei freiwilligen regiment Kroatian , formed in November 1943, Polizei freiwilligen battailon Montenegro , formed June 1944.
  5. Hello, does anyone have a copy or access to the Russian militaria magazine "Old Zeughaus" issue 72 , April 2016 ? Dave.
  6. Hello, anyone know what colour the rectangular collar patches were for the newly created Albanian army and gendarmerie from 1913 ? They had grey green Italian style uniforms.Period photos show dark patches, black or dark red . Gendarmerie red ?
  7. Hello, does anyone have a copy or access to this book by Henry L Gaidis ? - A history of the Lithuanian forces in world war 2,1939-1945.
  8. Hello gents, found this link recently that shows Albanian uniforms from 1912 right through to the communist era. Very impressive collection. http://www.gazetadita.al/fotot-shteti-shqiptar-ne-uniforma/ Although I cannot see any uniforms worn by the Albanian army after the 1943 Italian armistice. Did they continue to wear the Cacciatori d'Albania collar patches (red and Black) or reintroduce the pre 1939 Albanian green ones ? Dave.
  9. Hello, did the Ukrainian front /mobile battalions have the plain grey uniform or did some battalions have the police uniform with brown collars/cuffs ? Or both worn together in the same units ? Dave.
  10. Did the Ukrainian schuma (front/mobile units) have mainly grey uniforms or the police uniforms with brown collars and cuffs ? Dave.
  11. Hello, i would have suggested you look at this website- http://www.albmilitary.com but unfortunately it became defunct in the summer of 2013, which was a shame as it had a lot of information and photos. You could try the Albanian armed forces museum , Forcat e armatosura muze, email - aqfa@aaf.mil.al , i have emailed a few times but keep on getting a "failed delivery " message, perhaps you will have more success. Dave.
  12. Hello Artan, apologies for this late reply, and thanks for this really unusual uniform of a unit I never knew existed. Dave.
  13. Hello, anyone know what colour the collar patch colours were for the Albanian army or "international gendarmerie" when the modern Albania became independent 1912-13 ? Any museum displays of this grey uniform ? dave.
  14. Hello gents, did the Georgian and Armenian rifle regiments have any cyrillic letters to identify the nationlity on the shoulder boards 1914-17 ? If so what colour ? Dave.
