The Prussian

Which nation?

Recommended Posts

Hello!
I need help to ID the uniforms of the men around the german officer.

Note the chevrons. Unfortunately the arm-patch is invisible.

The reverse is only marked with "Post Card", nothing else.

Thanks a lot i n advance!

Another try...

My best guess would be Denmark, between the wars.

Compare with the enclosed photo

Hello Odulf!

No, I don´t think so. Denish uniforms had other chevrons. Because of the german officer in the middle I don´t believe in post-war era.

The Prussian : I think they are finns during the year 1918 ,wearing perhaps swedish uniforms without the blue chevrons and collars two of the non german officers wears shoulder boards german style, one what appears to be a field officer strap the other, a subaltern strap . only one non german uses headgear and service belt . the cap is tipically finn . greetings Bayern .
