    New Book 'Traditions of the Imperial German Infantry Regiments'

    Yes Mark, all in English. I realised there was a lot of info out there that English speakers couldn't easily access that needed sharing. I hope you enjoy it. Cheers Chris

    Fort de la Pompelle Museum Video

    Thanks for the recommendation of the Gravelotte Museum, I'd not heard of that before. I'd better put it on my list to visit... the Belgian army museum is very. very good.

    Fort de la Pompelle Museum Video

    Hi Willi, Thanks for those photos, I think I prefer the old display that you saw. It was very difficult to phograph some of the helmets when they were all spread out in a large display. Still an amazing museum and a 'must see' for any Pickelhaube enthusiast. Cheers Chris

    Abreviation a. I. s. d. ?

    Hello all, Can anyone heelp me with this abreviation "a. I. s. d.". It's used after a rank title, eg "Hauptmann a. I. s. d.". I suspect it means the officier in question is still in service but on secondment (in this case to the colonies) but I'm not sure exactly. Any help appreciated...
