Thanks Chris,

in 1909 the ranks of Zeugsergeant and Depot-Vizefeldwebel were superceded. What title of rank did these NCOs then adopt?

Glenn

I am not sure that a clue would be helpful so I will provide the answer. These guys adopted the title of Schirrmeister and Oberschirrmeister. It was meant to br tricky :D Please feel free to submit the next question.

OK, I'll offer a question get the ball rolling again-

Of the 217 Infantry Regiments of the Imperial Army in 1914 only one was not authorised to wear the Pickelhaube spiked helmet. Which one?

Cheers
Chris

Thanks Chris,

in similar vein, go back about another twenty five years or so and another infantry regiment also did not wear the Pickelhaube. Which regiment was that? And I am not talking about the Bavarian Raupenhelme!

Could that be the Braunschweigisches Infanterie-Regiment Nr.92 who still wore their old black Tshako and Polrock tunic up until 1892?

Cheers
Chris

Those 217 regiments fought in various parts of Europe 1914-18, but only one fought in Palestine, which?

Hi Chris,

thank you. Lets try another obscure uniform question. :)

Who would wear this uniform?

It looks like what the old DH Hagger book on Hussars calls Mounted Field Courier Corps, but they've got Litzen... I'll have another think in the morning!

I think we need a bit of a clue,

Chris, he is not from the Reitendes Feldjägerkorps. In fact, it is not a Prussian uniform. The style of "flap" piping at the rear and the lower edge of the tunic are specific to one contingent.

Glenn
