    Default Help with saxon regiment

    Could a Form member confirm the authenticity of the enclosed buckle? I have looked at other examples on the Forum and it seems to pass muster – to my inexperienced eye!
    If genuine, I would like to ask for additional help with identity of the unit stamped on the edge? Could it be an artillery related?

    Any assistance will be most welcome.

    Kind regards, Malcolm.

    Hello,

    this is a perfectly sound example of the standard saxon buckle made by G.H. OSANG in Dresden

    The marking 19 A.F. 4 means that this buckle was part of the 19 th foot artillery regiment, 4 th battery, garrisoned in Dresden Riesa

    This regiment was the second saxon regiment of foot artillery

    Saxon buckles are very often found with regimental markings and this one is a good example

    Nothing to add...the above statement says it all.........
    Prost ! Steve.
    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
