Kragenabzeichen Tr?gertruppe

Gentlemen,

I recently purchased a couple of the Kragenabzeichen Tr?gertruppe. I have noticed that the ones I have seen, either for sale or in collections (including my own), have been for the 'right' collar. Now, this begs the question where they made in pairs (left and right facing), or where they only made right facing as either a money saving effort or because that's the way it was. The Austro-Hungarians certainly had left and right collar badges i.e. machine gun badge.

Advertisment: Collector with two right collar badges wishes to correspond with collector who has two left collar badges; object: making a pair :D

Cheers,

Ian

Charles,

Yes I beleive that the Tr?ger were recruited from Bosnia and as such the badge depicts a Muslim wearing a fez. Unfortuantely, I don't know too much about the role of the Tr?ger or why and how they were recruited.

Cheers,

Ian
