AH Storm Troop items and photo's

Nice one! Great with the helmets

These two also wear cavalry boots and trousers I think (and a single shoulderloop at the officer to the left), not sure if they are also stormtroops? When started regular cavalry wearing helmets?


From fortepan.hu. Note the Hungarian cavalry boots, they are probably hussars.

Hello : The Austro hungarian cavalry received steel helmets somewhat late but by the year 1918 they were of general use . not all the cavalry was dismounted and inclusive the dismounted units conserved a troop of 25 riders . The hungarians Somogyi and Barczi in their book about the Honved : For the king and the country Kyralyert Ez Hazaert offer much information .I think that the guys included the two officers are regimental stormtroopers , rohamist of a dismounted regiment of hussars .
