    Hi Kevin, these are not Red Army or Russian.

    Try Bulgarian?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade
    I think you're right. The insignia is from Bulgarian. However I still can't make sure it's WWI or WWII or else???

    That would be completely outside of my knowledge sorry. Never collected this stuff.

    Those have definitely nothing to do with any Russian army.

    I am also rather sure that those are not shoulder boards at all - looks more like collar pieces..

    Its a Belgian board piped for Infantry. The lack of Button hole is odd and its too big and wrong shape for Belgian collar device.

    Here is an example of an unpiped version.
