Hi Semenov,
I agree with you. In most of the cases I can see a diffrence between a cossack and a nordkaukasien, but I don´t know how. Is there some basic diffrence(s) in their dress?
with best regards
Arto

Hello Gentlemen!

There's an interesting description concerning the end of the Cossacks in Dr. Rudolf Gschöpf's "Mein Weg mit der 45. Inf.-Div." (2nd ed. 2002), a description of what probably must have been the last actual Cavalry charge of the war, apparently with drawn swords!?
"In der Nacht zum 23. März 1945 unternahm die 1. Abteilung des 4. Kuban-Kosaken-Regiments unter Führung von Major Mach noch eine Attacke mit blanker Waffe gegen bulgarische Artillerie und brachte 450 Gefangene ein."

Major Franz-Wilhelm Mach, who led the charge, recieved the RK on 30.04.1945 while commanding I./Kuban-Kos.Reit.Rgt. 4.
Major Mach was executed on 26.02.1946 by the Soviets.


Regards,

Krollspell
