Azerbaijan (Democratic republic 1918-20) uniforms ?

Recommended Posts

Hello

an odd request but does anyone know what uniforms were worn by the army of the Azerbaijan Democratic Republic during 1918-20.

I believe they wore mainly Russian uniforms.

Also there may be some illustrations in the Russian TSEIKHGAUZ magazine issue 40-41.

Does anyone have a copy ?

Dave.

Hello Gentlemen,

I cannot bring much to this topic, I'am NOT an uniform specialist, but you should ounce visit the Istiqlal Museum in Baku ( Museum of Independence).

In this museum are some (not a lot), items from Azerbaijan Republic from 1918-20.

In the museum lies this Order : Sattarxan Ordeni (It's about 5 & half to 6 centimeter high, 4 & half to 5 centimeter wide). It's the onliest of its kind.

This is a Rank Insignia from Azeri Uniform from that period.

Due to reflection of the glass window, this is the best photo I can show, this rank insignia is the smallest in size (about 6 to 6 & half centimeter diameter for the star). But there are model in the showcase that are 20 % larger.

Regards.

The Istiqlal Museum of Azerbaijan, is in this Museum on 3rd Floor. 

Keep in mind that in the "ex russian sphere of influence" , the Ground Floor = Floor 1, and thus the 3 Rd Floor correspond to a european/american floor.

This museum is very easy to find, on the great boulevard that is along side the Caspian Sea.

Regards.
