    Hi,

    Latest pictures from me. Officers this time.

    First picture is dated 1924 and is interesting because the officer still wears the WW1 issue tunic but with the 1919 pattern universal collar insignia and the cap has the black chin strap that was standard for all ranks.

    The second photo is the same officer but dated July 1934. Just put it in because they came together.

    As a comparison this officer has the 1927 pattern cap with the new silver cords for officers. It is dated Sept 1928. Fabulous profile shot and the Horse looks full of character as well.

    Another find. This rather nice shot of an infantry oberfeldwebel from a bavarian Regt. Can't quite make out the numerals on the schulterklappen to pin it down. High collar M1920 eight button tunic is shown to advantage, my guess the cap is private purchase with officer cockade.

    cheers

    Hi

    Nice portrait shot of a tree trunk I was taken with on E bay, judging by the pattern on the bark I would say its a late 1920's issue tree.

    The bonus is that next to the trunk was gefreiter from 7 Kompanie 15th JR and the date wriiten on the back is 18th May 1928 allowing us to date the tree accordingly.


    He wears the m1920 tunic with the high collar . A marksman award on the cuff plus the sports award on his breast pocket.

    M1920 peaked cap is shown to advantage.

    cheers

    Hi,

    If I may share these with you in order to keep the thread going with some more pictures. Some recently acquired and some that have been in my "in tray" awaiting cataloguing.

    The first is a cracking shot dated 1920 on the rear showing avery young man still in WW1 uniform but bearing the insignia of the provisional reichswehr.

    The two shots of soldiers IR 17, one with the traditions badge of IR 92 making him a member of either komp1 or 4. Note the cockade on his cap. (nothing Prussian about that!)

    Next few shots show soldiers with Sabres...........a common theme in the photographers right through the 1920 and 1930's, these pictures date from 1920 to 1932/33.

    Final shots show the new uniform from 1928 and the insignia of 1933 onwards.....what TR collectors deem transitional uniform but I prefer "the end of an era" to describe these rather elegant items of uniform.
