AH Storm Troop items and photo's


Recommended Posts

I love the posting by Chris Boonzaier and others on the Imperial German forum regarding the German Stormtroops.

Hope we can make something similar here for the AH Storm Troops.

Unfortunately my own collection is small in this field so please help and get this going!

All the best Erik

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 .

    • 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.
