    Default Imperial Hussars Atilla Jacket

    I screwed up and put this in the wrong forum so I am reposting this here.
    I am not sure which unit this belongs to. I picked it up 40 years ago from a WWI vet with some other German souvenirs.
    I have a few more Imperial tunics I will post later.

    Steve, the tunic to have ! an other ranks Hussars Attila (jacket), has it any shoulder straps ?..this Attila is from the Leib-Garde (Life-Guard) Husaren Regiment garrisoned at Potsdam part of the Garde-Korps, a premier unit part of a premier Corps! stunning in its Ponceau Red (Bright Red) colour with yellow braiding, having a yellow/gold lace with a central red stripe running around the top of the collar below the piping, and below each cuff braid. This Regiment was raised in 1815, and its Colonel-in-Chief was the Kaiser himself !
    Thanks for showing this superb tunic...very envious !
    Prost ! Steve.
