Identify this KuK soldier uniform

Recommended Posts

Can any one identify the uniform of this gentleman?

It is Hungarian and I think it may be pre WWI. There is braiding on his sleeves and the upper part of his trousers.

He is wearing a bayonet, and appears to be of tizades rank (corporal?)

It should be a NCO of the Royal Hungarian Honv?d.

Best wishes,

Enzo

Enzo thank you for your reply. I 'm still interested whether it is WWI or prior. Maybe someone will know.

Hi,

it is really a korporal of honv?d, he has a Mannlicher bayonet and a typical honv?d buckle. There is a name of town - Kaposvar... only one honved regiment was in this town - P?cs 19. honv?d regiment - III. Battailon..

Hi, the uniform must be pre IWW. Uniforms , even Honved were changed around 1900.

Hello the soldier in the photo wears the uniform of a Infantry Tizedes of the Royal Hungarian Honved of the pattern used between 1888 and 1906 for Field Service and Walking out, Is Honved ,and not Hungarian Regiment of the Common Army because he wears the red Hungarian Knot on the trousers and cuffs , the Hungarian Regiments used yellow and black braid on the trousers and a special braid on the cuffs called bear claws, 

In Kaposvar was garrisoned the 3rd Batailon of the 19th Pecs Honved Infantry Regiment . the man also wears the Hungarian Honved belt buckle ,with the crowned Hungarian coat of arms
