    13th Uhlan Regiment enlisted with shooting cord

    Great photo. My best regimental collection is for the 13U, so I might be a little partial--just a little--maybe. I have a shooting cord just like that one.

    12th Hussar Regiment - colored

    You can just see the pride radiating from this trooper. Great photo. Notice that he has a lance shoe on his left stirrup. Since lances are normally carried on the right side, can we assume that he had a shoe on both sides? I haven't seen this in other photos.

    Happy Fathers Day

    For all of you fathers out there, I hope that you have a happy and blessed day. That also goes for you fathers in countries that do not celebrate when we do in the USA.

    He is a proud trooper, tall in the saddle. Love that moustache.

    Very nice, but I am partial to Imperial cavalry as you already know.

    Garde Ulanen Regiment band

    I wonder how they guide their mounts. In photos of kettle drummers, reins attached to stirrups are evident. I don't see that here.

    Cavalry stirrup with lance holder

    Very nice. I don't think that there are very many of these around. You and I were both lucky to find one.

    Wappen mold

    I agree with Alan. A stamping die would have sharp detail definition, not the "fuzzy" detail that this piece demonstrates. JMHO.

    21st Dragoon Regiment - Durch das Wasserloch

    Okay, thank you. I should have known that, but I didn't think it through.
