    Private from Brunswick Artillery Regiment 46

    Recommended Posts

    For my library I recently acquired a book on the Kings German Legion printed 1906. As a nice surprise I did found this photo between the pages of the book. It shows a private from the artillery regiment 46 in an old polrock. I am not sure if the seller was aware of this photo, but I like it. Sadly the guy doesn't show any decorations, but photos of an artillery man are pretty rare, so I thought you may like it too.

    Have a nice Saint Nicholas day 

    PS: photo must have been taken before 1886.

    Hi blackcowboy,

    nice photo. Cn you explain how you can see that he is from the artillery?



    Hey GreyC,

    the fold on the collar tells you that he is from the artillery.

    Hi, was there a practicle purpose for the braiding on the front of the tunic? Ithink the British Arty had it as well.

    No the braiding is a style that the uniforms of the black troops of duke Friedrich Wilhelm, when he marched to the north sea in 1809.
