Principality of Serbia - Question about uniform


Recommended Posts

If I'm right this should be, acording to the Pavle Vasic's book Uniforms of the Serbian army 1808/1918, uniform of the cavlary guard officer from 1859.

It was consisted of dolama made of green cloth, trousers of red cloth, brown overcoat and cap (kalpak) of black astrakhan with flat top.

But the illustration in the book is much different from the picture that I have. So I'm wondering whether it is the same uniform.

Any help or comment is more than welcome.

Regards

Paja

Sajkaca, thank you! According to some information i recieved person on this picture was a member of guard, that confused me, because I have never seen a uniform like that before.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
