Does anyone on this forum collect Austrian uniforms and headgear from WW1?

I have great interest but haven't found many people who also share interest in uniforms of this period. If anyone has items please share images.

Hi Gordon

Very nice

Do you have pictures of the inside of the coats ?

Hi Gordon

montfort1,

I'll take photos of the interior of the uniforms tomorow. Also some closeups of the buttons and rank insignia would probably be of interset.

David M,

I'll get pictures of the things you asked for tomorrow as well. I recently moved and my reference notes of these uniforms is still buried somewhere in a box. I'll see if I can find it and post what research I have done on the Administration Oficials uniform as soon as I can find the time to dig it out.

Regards,

Gordon

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did.

    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
