    Default What are these guys? Germans?

    I was wondering what these guys are. Are they Germans? Notice they have white around the top of their collars. Are they military priests? Notice the hand-made bed frame & table. They are both made from Branch wood. I have lots of interesting WW 1 uniformed portraits. I will show them all here, in hopes someone will tell me what units they were in. Some of them are pretty cool!

    I tried to enlarge -- no luck. Russian Cossack division of the German Army? They did that in WW 1 too?

    Are all your pictures only of Germans, Austrian/Hungarians? I know they are not German for sure.

    The Cossack divisions usually didn't look like these two gentleman, but there features and facial hair look very Russian of that time.

    I ASSUME they are Germans or Austrians, but no nothing for sure. Here is just one of them. He is wearing a nice uniform, and look at his bayonet & knot! He is someone's Uncle (so it says on the back.) Any idea what unit he is from?

    This gentleman is German. Look at the emblem on hat. The black, red and white Prussian colours. Looks to be Navy and an officer.

    Look at the one collar. Very similar to photo of seated gentlemen you posted.
    These soldiers are Hungarian.
