Hello!

Those who have better knowledge can you identify these shoulder boards?514178989_ImperialRussianshoulderboardsI.jpg.4435f0dcb80a410c48feb6486465dd3b.jpg644332660_ImperialRussianshoulderboardsII.jpg.f330df7898192e6cde79f57a900e612b.jpg417729195_ImperialRussianshoulderboardsIII.jpg.6b8980099f7449362f2e6258a141410e.jpg

In the middle picture,  second shoulder board from the right. I think in that should be printed the crown and the insignia of Nicholas II.

The bottom right Admirals shoulder board is a fake.  It is a Soviet era  Generals/Admirals board which had the star removed and a modern day embroidery executed of an Imperial  Admirals eagle, 100% fake.  Just compare the width and quality of the shoulder board field’s embroidery and constitution to the original overcoat Major Generals board which is to the left of it, night and day difference.

Oko, Mollo book is fine, but here is more serious refference on Russian pogoni by another world expert Gerard Gorokhoff, printed in one of few English edittions of the excellent French Militaria magaz

The rest of both articles is on other elements of the uniform, not on the shoulder boards in particular. However, there are some Russian books (in Russian of course) with very detailed schemes (no pic

Hello!

Is this pair of shoulder boards genuine or not. It looks odd. For example button is lower than those which I have. And was in imperial Russian shoulder boards used metallic stars of ranks?

Would be grateful for comments!

Thanks Sajkaca !

A question for Sajkaca ; I know tha Prince Arseni Karageorgevich served with the Imperial Guard , but no other conections between the Serbian Royals with the Tsarist Miitary, King Petar I for example was Colonel of any Russian Regiment or honorary General ¨?

Prince Arsen served in LG Kavaler Guards RGT at the same time with Baron Mannergheim. His brother George served in LG Hussars, but he died very young. King Peter I was honorary General, commander of 14th Olonets IR, whilst Crown Prince Alexander was Captain. Princess Jelena was married to Prince of Royal Blood Ioann Constantinovich Romanov. I wrote about it in detail for the Russian magazine Starii Zeughaus.

Many Thanks ! I had read about Prince Arseni in the Memories of Marshall Mannerheim . the other information was and is practically unknown in Europe not to say in my remote Argentine. The two men on the cover of the magazine are Gendarms ? I assume that the old man with the Kiwer is King Petar . Kind regards !

Because of this obsession to be the last on the thread without posting anything ever on the subject. I think that this is pretty much the oh.

The floor is yours now 🙂

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
