    Mounted Artillerymen and an Uhlan

    Good photo of 2 mounted members of 63rd Artillery Regiment along with an Uhlan (maybe an escort). The horse gear is interesting. Enjoy!

    11th Hussar Regiment Photos

    These 2 photos are related. They both have descriptions on the back. The first seems to be "Herrn Unteroffizier Oberste Lehn." Not sure what the start of the 2nd line is before the April 1907 date. Seems to be signed by a Walter Reinhard who was an EinjahrFreiwilligen". Looking at the photo...

    Uhlan mounted

    Judging by the curved KD-89 saber he's likely a Saxon Uhlan. Good details of the field gear

    Uhlan NCO..mounted

    This is probably the 13th or 16th Uhlan regiment. I can't tell if the colors on his Ulanka are white or light blue. The town the photographer is located in is fairly close to both Hannover and Gardelegen...the garrison towns for those 2 regiments. Enjoy!

    Mecklenburg-Schwerin Dragoon Officer's Saber, Damascus Blade

    Picked this up on ebay last week and it arrived today. The seller had this listed as an "Antique German Cavalry Officer's Saber" which is not wrong but misses the unique nature of this sword. It is a saber that is unique to the 2 Mecklenburg-Schwerin Dragoon regiments (nrs 17 and 18), they...

    Hussars parading in the field...with uberzugs

    Hard to tell which Regiment this is. Uniforms appear very dark, so they are either black, red or dark green. With the white piping and dark Kolpak that leaves the 1st, 3rd, 5th and 11th. The shabraques are all dark colors which I think would rule out the 3rd (which had some dark blue in it...

    Braunschweig Infantry Regt nr 92 Officer's Sword

    This type of sword could only be carried by officer's of the 92nd Infantry Regiment. These have a nickel-silver fittings on the guard and handle. The basket guard contains the crown-W cypher of Duke William and the pommel is tiered. Not something I normally would have bought but it...
