Some very interesting pictures there Peter, in particular the Jäger being escorted by bearskin wearing Grenadier Guards.

Robert,

Interesting photo of the 125ers! There are several patterns of shoulder straps being worn there, the most interesting being the cotton ones....an Ersatz pattern particular to Württemberg.

This might be one of the preventative measures used to stop any more helms crossing the Dutch border. :D

Ah, yes the Macedons... one of my favourites. Thanks for posting these here too Peter. I fully recommend people have a look through that whole album (link posted by Peter above) if you've got an interest in the Macedonia campaign or the Bulgarian army.

Belgian Gendarmerie

Post by Khukri » Fri Jan 21, 2011 4:29 pm

The Jäger are escorted by Belgian Gendarmerie (not Belgian Grenadiers) both wore the bearskin.
So not British Grenadier Guards !That's for sure !

When I see the grenade insigna it must be Gendarmerie as the Grenadiers grenade insigna has "fanned" flames.

Well I took your advice and boy was it worth it. What a great treat! Now that is one heck of a collection! 64 pages and I was not disappointed. While there were no scroll helmets, I did find something that throws more dust at the 28th picture of Brett:

these kinds of prisoners were in Salonika.

Francis,

Looking at this bearskin who the heck is this guy?

Gelsenkirchen Studio

Post by Khukri » Sat Jan 22, 2011 2:45 am

Gelsenkirchen is in Germany.

A post-WWI Studio Picture??
The Rhineland was occupied by Belgian and French troops.

British as well ???

Probably Belgian Gendarmerie and Grenadiers were there then.

But this man .... :?

When I look at this photo I can't help thinking Danish Life Guards.


Here's a photo from the Danish Royal Life Guard web site of the commander of the Guard Company, Major Johnnie Korsholm Andersen. I think his uniform is just about identical. In other photos of the guardsmen where I can see the cuffs of their coats, they have the type of litzen on their cuffs as in the old photo.
