Uhlans in the field

Post by cptbob » Sat Oct 31, 2020 7:22 pm

Neat photo of a group of Guard Ulanen officer's and NCO's briefing or getting orders from another officer while in the field. In a scene to be found in any Army in the world, there is a group of enlisted guys lounging around waiting for the brass to make up their minds. :) Can't quite tell which Guard Uhlan regiment it is. Hard to tell if those are red or yellow cuffs. Any ideas?

Nice pic that, interesting.
Just started blindfolded archery, best thing I've ever done, if you've not tried it. You don't know what your missing.

Excellent photo! Note that officer in the middle of the group is wearing a pickelhaube.
