Gents,

This is yours? :jumping::cheers:

Yes, Paul, both items are mine.

The tunic is that of Prinz Heinrich, brother of Wilhelm II, as a la Suite of the Hessian 25th Feldartillerieregement. Rank is that of a Generaloberst im Range eines Generalfeldmarschalls.

Regards,

Sandro

Many thanks for your kind words, Paul. The grouping is quite complete, with the daily wear and sash belts, the bandoleer and Kartuschkasten, the cap (with cypher), epaulettes, and boxes for the epaulettes and sash belt. If anyone has a pic of Prinz Heinrich wearing this tunic, I will be interested !

Incidentally, the tunic on the left is the early style prussian General?s tunic, the one on the right the later style.....

Regards,

Sandro

Awesome display!

Did you make the display case? Tell us a little about that--it looks outstanding

Thanks Chris. No, I wish I had the skill! I had it purpose built a couple of years ago, when I ventured into collecting general?s tunics.

Regards,

Sandro

Absolutely wonderful. That's the exact tunic I've been searching for for some time now.

I love field grey generals tunics. :jumping::jumping::jumping:
