    Not my subject, but I suspect the coat will be Italian Carabinieri.

    Woops! I am wrong my apologise! I tought the coat was Belgian Gendarmerie, but the buttons been made in Italy puzzeld me, at a closser look I just saw the grenade is not the grenade with the symetric flame, but does seem indeed more to be the Carabinieri grenade.
    The astrakan bonnet does look like a Belgian freedom fighter bonnet , but I would like to see more details of it.

    the fifth picture in the treath http://warrelics.eu/forum/after-batt...-belgium-4832/
    shows a periode one.
    Now these bonnets have been made (copied) all over the years from 1830 until now ,in every single town or village to be worn at shows commemorating the Belgian independance.
    Mostly those shows are very carnivalesk and other old uniforms , like Gendarmerie coats, are worn, that is the reason I was pretty shure they where Belgian. Did'nt pay attention on details!
    The old one's are collectibes.
