Hi Valdis,

I don't immediately recognize him but he is an Austrian Bundesheer General officer wearing the pre 1933 pattern uniform. 1933 saw a reintroduction of the traditional k.u.k. pattern insignia.

Hi Glenn,

Sorry for the delay in replying, but I'm spending most of the summer in Georgia (Caucasus, not USA) and have only occasional access to the net. Many thanks for your info, I hope someone will be able to put a name to our mystery man.

Best regards,

Valdis

VJK,

He looks somewhat like Generalmajor Eduard Barger????

Hi Graham,

I don't think he could be General Barger. The General was not promoted to Generalmajor until 24 December 1935, some two and a half years after the reintroduction of the former k.u.k. style uniform. Eduard Barger is pictured here still as a colonel in the newly reintroduced uniform whereas the General officer at the beginning of this thread is wearing the older pattern Bundesheer uniform.

Regards

Glenn
