    Sorry, but they are Austrian police. Cannot comment on the era, though.

    You're welcome.

    Doing a little more research, I found out the branch as well. They are from the Austrian Bundessicherheitswachekorps (or, for short, Sicherheitswache or SW) which existed from 1869 to 2005 (with an obvious interruption from 1938 to 1945).

    See here for a full rank insignia chart of the Corps' final insignia: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...wachekorps.JPG
    (Although yours may be from an earlier timeframe.)

    Detail of the Corps Badge, described as being over 140 years old:

    SUPER many thanks for your help here answers many questions. The top collar conforms to the list you provide but the others do not , so am wondering if they are in fact WW11 period

    Well, these items have nothing to do with Estonia - as I see there are clear Edelweiss symbols and also colours are red and white - red and white are Latvian national colours and we do not have any mountains and also no Edelweiss flowers here:-)
