    They are all old men, so I would also assume that they are WWI Vets.

    They look like Imperial caps to me.

    I agree--I believe they are former Husaren of the Kaiserreich wearing Imperial caps (which were probably made in the 1930s)

    The Regiment Garde du Corps, a cavalry regiment that fought in WW1 wore a white cap with red band and piping. Here's a seargeant wearing the cap circa 1912, and also a colour photo of a modern day copy for reference.

    Stands a fair chance?
