    Austrian Navy ?

    Interesting photo. I am a long way from my reference material at the moment but he appears to be a regular officer of the KuK. The fancy braid on the cuffs was worn by some units. Hopefully I can do better when I get home next week.

    Tom Y,

    I was leaning towards Honved myself but there are other Infantry units besides the Hoved that had braid like that on their sleeves.


    The hat is not of the type worn by Diplomats. They wore the Beamten type hat often referred to as the fore and aft hat. The Foreign medals are interesting.
