Information about the 15th Dragoon Regiment

Post by Douglas Jr. » 12 Jun 2003 04:58

Hello folks,

Anyone has any information about the Austro-Hungarian 15th Regiment of Dragoons during the World War I? Campaings, battles, etc., would be appreciate.

I´m asking because I own a Roth-Steyr M7 pistol that bears the marks of this unit, so I´m very curious about its history. :roll:

Many thanks in advance.

Douglas.

Milán and Moulded,

Thank you very much for your kind help, mates! :D
Two more questions: 1) what means the K.U.K. abreviation? and 2) How would I say "Dragoon Regiment" in the original language?

Regards,

Douglas.

K.U.K --The regiments of the common army were designated "Imperial and Royal" - kaiserlich und königlich or k.u.k. The Austrian Landwehr regiments were titled "Imperial Royal" - kaiserlich königlich or k.k. Finally the Landwehr (Honvéd) were styled "Royal Hungarian" - königlich ungarisch or k.u.

Answer to question No 2 Dragoner Regiment (german). The full title of DR 15 was Dragoner Regiment Erzherzog Joseph (Archduke Joseph) Nr 15 and the regimental Hq before the War was Wiener-Neustadt.
