    Default Postcard Of Austro Hungarian (KuK) Troops On Parade.

    Hi All, I've picked up this interesting p/c of Austro Hungarian troops on parade during the WW1 period. Taken by a photographer from Slavkov (now in the Czech Republic). Of note are the wounded men, the band & the 3 girls in the top window standing in height order!!

    Cheers,

    Richard.

    Yes, actually looking at it again - I can feel that. All three with their arms down just staring. But I have to ask - the two older girls are in the same garb, but the smaller one just doesn't quite make it - I wonder why?

    Lol. The younger girls not old enough for the outfit! It's looks like they're standing to attention! Cheers, Richard.

    Ya know Richard, looking at it yet again.....it is interesting to note that there is a discrepancy in their 'bibs'. I find it interesting that the youngest girl does not have one; the second eldest has three diamonds and the eldest has four diamonds.... Perhaps it is just a sign of the times and it related to their age.

    Cheers

    I wonder if it's a school uniform?

    To be honest, I don't see diamonds; these look like plaid patterns to me.

    Certainly stand to be corrected! Perhaps I over analysed it?

    Cheers
