The coat is basically a 1910 field grey tunic for officers with cavalry type collar of the model used By Dragoons and the Bavarian Heavy Cavalry ,but the breast pockets are not reglamentary and the turn up cuffs are higher than the usual swedish Cuffs of 1910 tunics . regarding the lost Reichscockade some Bavarians were prone to forget the upper cockade in the Field .as the pic is dated 1915 logically if Bavarian Ludwig dont carry the Aschinger Borte introduced in 1916

I think you may have it with the cavalry cuffs, I must see if Ludwig had any cav background. Fischer definitely did not and was only promoted from the ranks in mid 1916 so no cav connection. The collars is problematic, I do not see a cav connection... this looks like a standard collar IMHO. As far as the Borte goes, impossible to date with Borte... many Bavarian Photos show it was often not worn. The Ludwig pic is early 1915, the Fischer one mid 1916 at the earliest.

The scallops on the pocket seem to have the Austrian style.

Hi Chris,

he is pictured as a General Staff officer; note the trouser Lampassen. He was originally an infantry officer - Infanterie-Leib-Regiment.

    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • 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 .
