This picture is dated March 1920 and sent by "your friend Karl" , one assumes the young man on the front. Freikorps insignia on the collar and technically not part of the Reichswehr his unit may have been absorbed into the RW later on. Note the Imperial cockades still in place and looks like a Hessian or maybe Bavarian cockade on the cap band, any suggestions for the unit appreciated.
Well done. March 1920 is provisional Rw as well.
Great pictures! All wear standard M.21 feldrock's and M.21 field caps w/visor (all modell 'January 1, 1921').
On these caps now contains a new tricolor-cocards, established on "16. Мärz 1933" when the Republic fall.
Some soldiers have stripes for shooting (in silver, mod.1928) on their sleeves.
The whole situation with a uniform typical for 1935. But, the truth, some reason absolutely no one has the breast-eagles. Although they were introduced on February 17, 1934.
Very unexpected Photography! Nowadays, any views of the 1925's field manoeuvres extremely rare! I love to look at them, but it's almost impossible...
In September 1925 the first autumn 'DIVISION-exercises' were carried out. Unfortunately, I do not know exactly which Division fighting there; Nevertheless, I know that have been involved 1st Division, 3rd Division and 2nd Cavalry Brigade. Also attended dummy tanks (Panzerattrappe).
Among the famous generals include: SEECKT, HEYE, BLOMBERG, and GUDERIAN with his adjutant!
In eastern Prussia Swedish officers were visiting the 3rd Battalion of 1st Division (as guest-observer)!
1929 (January 2). Reichswehr Ski-competition in Klingenthal, Saxony.
General Heye at the beginning of the championship. Right - Blomberg?
1929 Press-photo. Contrary to the officer's tradition, Haye has all metal emblem on the cap...
Yes, on the crown necessary in the metal (land marks, or Brunswick skull).
But on the band ought to be embroidered with silver thread.
1930 "Soldaten im Einsatz" - very strange color of band on the field cap!
i'd like to know which kind of visor wore the Reichswehr guy on picture.
Mod. '17 (old imperial cap) or new mod. '20?
What a pity! It became clear, why are you not on the forum about two weeks.
No, unfortunately, I did not participate in the auction.
Now in addition, there are many different Reichswehr and "Döberitz 1931" in stock, and...
