Lovely grouping. The photograph shows him as an Oberleutnant in 1. Garde-Dragoner-Regiment Königin Viktoria von Großbritannien und Irland.

Steve, yes it is. Interim Officers helm for Jaeger zu Pferde Regts 8-13. This also came with a 3" x 3" pad made with the same material as the liner to cushion the top of the head when wearing the helmet.

Absolutely breathtaking. Thanks for bringing this up, I had never seen it in my wanderings about the forum.
