Estonian badge of the 1st Hussar Regiment??


Recommended Posts

Hello.  I just bought this badge in Poland.  I was told this is from the Estonian 1st Hussar Regiment, but the nut on reverse said it was made in Warsaw, Poland.

Can you help identify this badge?  Any information would be appreciated.

Thank you.

This page agrees that it is the badge of the 1st Hussar Regiment of Estonia,

The one shown on the page linked to was made in Estonia, though.

Here is an Estonian Wikipedia page about the regiment which shows an illustration of the badge and if you Google "Ratsarügement" you will find lots more on the regiment and its badge.

I'm not specialist, but i know they have made copies in Poland. This can be copy as well. It seems little bit weird to me... But as i mentioned earlier - i'm not the expert!

    • 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.
