REGAL UNIFORMA COLECTOR

Imperial Russian Shoulder board collection

Recommended Posts

Hello, A rough guide :  The shoulder boards made of gold or silver lace with a zig zag pattern and with no stripes are for Generals. The ones made of lace with two stripes are for Field Officers ,those with one stripe are for company officers .

Hello Sajkaca, The hussars pogoni is that of a Full captain or that of a Sub captain ?

There is no Captain in hussars, equivalent rank is called Rotmistr. Shtabs Rotmistr of 12th Hussars is on the picture and Rotmistr (full captain) would be with no pips (stars).

Sajkaca, Thanks for your answer , the Rotmistr was in fact the Russian equivalent of the German Rittmeister, The Bulgarian Cavalry and Artillery Captain was Rotmistr also if i am not wrong. 

Cossacks have Podesaul and Esaul ?
