Help to Identify an Estonian Unform 1917-1925

Post by Jonas1303 » 06 Sep 2019 10:29

I am looking for information about my great grandfathers uniforms since. I have not been able to identify that uniform myself and hope that I can get help with it.

I know he was Noorem Leitnant and Leitnant in Tallinn's first defense battalion as well as in Tallinn's second defense battalion. He was also head of the military intelligence, security police. Senior member of border police and Kaitseliit. This was between 1918 to 1941. I add a few pictures with different uniforms and I would be greatful if anyone have any information.

I noticed that the former Estonian President Konstatin Pätz had the same type of uniform and add a picture for you to see as well.

Thank you! Regards Jonas

Konstatin Pätz is in Russian Imperial Army uniform with a rank of Praporshchik
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.
