FRENCH & GERMAN UNIFORMS

WWI French Army




1916 Romanian Infantry Colonel. This uniform has white color cuff inserts added to simulate the wearing of a white shirt underneath the tunic. These white cuffs are marked, oddly enough, "West Point". This probably indicates that they were of U.S. manufacture or origin.








German Army white



This is a late 1800's to early 1900's German Army Kohler style uniform, belonging to a Cavalry Lieutenant serving in the Kurassier Regiment Herzog Friedrich Eugen von Wurttemberg (West Prussian) No. 5. This heavy cavalry regiment was attached to the 41st Kavallerie Brigade. This brigade was in turn attached to the 41st Division as part of the 20th Armee-Korps. This style of uniform was a dress uniform by itself, or worn with a heavy metal set of chest armor called a "Cuirass".
