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 ?

Sorry colleague, but it's incorrect identification. There were no "Imperial Marines". Shoulder-boards with such monogramms were in the rowing teams of three Guards Infantry regiments: Preobrazhenski, Semenovski and Kexholmski.

It's a general trend: most of the forums slowly die, as global communication is significantly transferred to social networks: Facebook, etc. I've been observing this phenomenon even on Russian military forums in the last years.

Hi! There are no "global" discussions dedicated only to shoulder-boards and epaulettes on Russian forums, or on social networks. However there are many smaller discussions which bring you interesting information. First of all you can check the Russian Imperial Uniforms section of the Sammler.ru forum, and I suggest you to visit the "Imperial Russian Military Photos" group on FB. You can also check my own profile on FB - I'm Michael Doubrovin. Unfortunately I don't collect shoulder-boards anymore, but I have a lifelong scope on the history of Russian lancers regiments (including their insignia).
