WW1 Uniform - Which country does this uniform belong to?

Please help me identify this ww1 uniform.


Having searched around the suggestions above, I eventually found this badge that is listed as a Imperial Russian Fire Society badge. As you can see, there are several similarities between it and the badge in your picture; the helmet and crossed axes mainly.

So, I'd agree with the others when saying that it appears to be the uniform of a Russian firefighter in the years leading to the revolution.


It's a fireman. If FD is for "fire department", he was a fireman probably somewhere in the US. Is the 2016 his badge ID?

World War One (WW1, WWI) Ww1 German Uniforms & Gear –

Imperial German Army Uniforms & Gear – IT is with great pleasure (and pride -I might add) That Ujna Universal brings you our collection of The Great War (world war one, ww1) German Imperial Army Uniforms, Equipment, Gear and Picklehaubes. Why did we take so long? It took us this long to have the correct wwi (ww1, world war one) Imperial Ww1 German Uniforms Feld Grau (Field grey (gray)) made for uniforms. Our Field Gray (grey) or Feld Grau is not the normal wool broadcloth dyed grey. Our Imperial Ww1 German Uniforms (world war 1, wwi) Field gray (grey) is the correct melange fabric. What that means is that we have used two types of woollen yarn to weave it. One black and one “muddy” or off-white. When woven together they give the distinct “muddy” Field grey(gray) color of The Imperial German Army of World War one (ww1,wwi). This is exactly how the fabric was woven during the time of the Great War. The fabric is an exact ounce for ounce replication in weight, weave and color of fabric. Our ww1 (world war one, wwi) Imperial German Army wool or Feld Grau is not green, it is not simply gray (grey), it is the correct “muddy” off-white Gray(grey) as worn during world war one (ww1), Imperial German Army Uniforms & Gear.

To make this correct world war one (ww1,wwi) Imperial German Army uniform fabric we took a big risk – our mill would not make anything less than 500 meters, but we figured that we could sell enough uniforms over a couple of years to justify stocking our Imperial German Army ww1 (wwi) uniform field grey. You will find our Imperial German Army uniforms a little more expensive than our other uniforms, but please remember, we have paid up front for a lot of fabric and that payout will come over years. Our intention was to make available quality Great War (world war one, ww1) Imperial German Army uniforms, at the best price available anywhere in the world, to re-enactors and the renacting community, living history groups, museums, and for costumes for films, movies, TV, theatre, plays and documentaries. I believe we have been successful in our objective – World War One (WW1, WWI) Imperial German Army Uniforms and Gear

Military Uniforms From Around The World

Military Uniforms – Uniform symbolizes power and strikes respect.

The men in military uniforms are valued because they lay down their lives for safeguarding their nation and stand guard to international borders rooting out the fear of thunder or hailstorm. The uniform hence is the repository of monopoly, power and perseverance. From uniform itself the soldiers from different nations are distinguished. But what really catches our fancy the sartorial tastes of their tailors and designers have multitude of differences too. You too will be amazed to see these pictures of the soldiers from different nations wearing their Military uniforms:

1 – Scotland:

The famous national outfit among men in Scotland is the Kilt which is worn by men at large there. But in the army uniform too Kilt reigns supreme. It is a skirt-like checked bottom wear which in this picture is worn by The Scottish soldiers of Balaklava company, 5 th Battalion of the Royal regiment of Scotland, who are gearing up for public duties in April 2018.

This is the camouflage Army uniform of Japan which pretty much seems akin to the one of Indian Army. In this picture the soldiers from Ground Self-defense force are seen in action in a field drill in August 2017.

Well, divas who have a soft corner for wide legged palazzos will definitely adore English army uniform because it looks pretty comfy. In this picture there is 3 Regiment Army Air Corps who marching in an inspection in May 2018.

They haven’t an Army with considerable power but the uniform really looks royal and graceful. The headgear accentuates the vitality of the uniform. Here in the picture the soldiers are seen participating in the Independence Day Parade in September 2017.

5 – Vatican City:

We are pretty sure this Army uniform will remind you of the Army in Westeros. This uniform looks so nostalgic and hence catches the fancy. Well, not to mention, Vatican City pretty well deserves Army uniformed like this. In this picture, there are New Pontifical Swiss Guard Recruits who gear up for the swearing in ceremony to their military units in May 2018.

This blue camouflage uniform of Iranian army really radiates power. This picture belongs from the Army Personnel Parade during Sacred Defense Week in September 2017.

The army of bravehearts and their uniform hence rightfully has the dash of red. In this picture there is the Army Horse Cavalry between their performance at the Horse Parade in March 2018.

How can one go without mentioning Israeli Army, their bravery has been the talking point always and here is an Israeli Force seen in action on March 2018.

In this picture, the Vietnamese army is marching to glory in a Soldier Ceremony held in March 2018.


The US uniforms for the Korean and Vietnam Wars were similar. By 1952, the US Army used the olive green utility uniform, which would be used for both conflicts. The Korean War also saw the introduction of Combat and Cargo Packs for soldiers.

By Desert Storm in 1990, the Army had adapted a range of camouflage patterns. At first, these patterns included the woodland and three color desert patterns. The new uniforms also featured some stylistic changes such as reducing the size of the collar.

Rank Insignia and Uniforms Thread

While it makes perfect sense from an historical point of view though, it just feels a bit boring so I've been trying to find another uniformed organisation that both has a connection with the Southern USA OTL and either flying or engineering (the nucleus of the french air force contained many of those)

I have assumed that the Army one would be used that way just like the confederate originaly did (except with metallic pins instead of embroidery) and the US army OTL also do on certain uniform. So if they simply reused Army insignias, the same would apply.

Hapsburg

Uniform of an officer of the Interstellar Transit Authority. The ITA is a bureau of the Department of Space Transportation, a department within the Ministry of Transportation, headed by the Under-Secretary of Interstellar Transport. The Interstellar Transit Authority owns, operates, polices, and staffs the enormous space transportation infrastructure across the Milky Way. Most commercial spacecraft are not equipped with independent jump drives, and typically transit between planets through a network of warp gates maintained by the ITA. Even spacecraft that are equipped with, and owners that are licensed to operate, onboard jump drives are tightly regulated and monitored by the ITA. Interstellar transportation, trade, and safety are under the ITA's purview, and it has dedicated sub-agencies for space vehicle safety, registration, and licensing. The only part of the space transportation infrastructure not under the ITA's control are the network of space ports that are either in orbit of planets or are attached to warp gates as servicing stations--often acting as hotels and resupply stations for manned craft on long voyages.
This officer likely belongs the station police at a warp gate, responsible for keeping an eye out for suspicious space vehicle activity and movement, and issuing orders to shoot down spacecraft if it is perceived that they are a danger. They cooperate with the Customs Enforcement police, also in the Ministry of Transportation, to ensure the safe and lawful flow of authorised goods in the course of interstellar commerce.


The Household Cavalry

The Household Cavalry is a corps formed of two regiments &ndash The Life Guards and The Blues and Royals. They are The Queen&rsquos official bodyguard. They are divided into the armoured regiment stationed at Windsor and the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment garrisoned at Hyde Park Barracks in London.

Like the five Foot Guards regiments they rotate between the operational unit and ceremonial duties. Most have never ridden a horse before and are schooled to become excellent riders by the regiment&rsquos instructors.

The armoured regiment has an active operational role as a formation reconnaissance regiment, serving in armoured fighting vehicles, which has put them at the forefront of the nation&rsquos conflicts.

The Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment line the entry steps at the opening of Parliament. (MOD/Sergeant Rupert Frere RLC)

The Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment is horsed and carries out mounted, and some dismounted, ceremonial duties on State and royal occasions, including the provision of a Sovereign&rsquos Escort, most commonly seen on The Queen&rsquos Birthday Parade, or Trooping the Colour in June each year.

New troopers and officers are generally first assigned to London upon completion of horsemanship training and remain there for up to three years. Both regiments wear a shiny silver helmet with brass and silver fittings. A long horse hair plume is mounted at the top of the helmet.

While on guard, the soldiers carry swords. When mounted on horses, the soldiers wear white riding-breeches, known as buckskins, and tall black winged leather boots. They also wear breastplates or cuirassier.


Uniform identification

Hello, can anyone help me with identifying the rank of these uniforms? My great grandfather served in the army and I have only these two photos. The left on was taken in about 1907 and the right about 1902. Both original photos are in black and white. Thank you very much!!

As an interesting side story, the printing on the photo on the right shows the name of the photographer in Hungarian as well as the photo studio address. The address shown is Eperjes, Fő Utcza, or in English, ‘Eperjes, Main Street’.

Eperjes was the Hungarian name of the present day Prešor, in Slovakia, and was part of the Kingdom of Hungary since 1132. That part of Hungary was dismembered after WWI and given to the newly formed country of Czechoslovakia in 1920 by the Treaty of Trianon. The new country of Slovakia was then created in 1993 when Czechoslovakia was also broken up.


20 Disadvantages and Advantages of School Uniforms

There aren’t any clear records to show when the wearing of school uniforms really started. But this tradition has certainly been around for hundreds of years. In the United States, it was observed that more schools started to implement uniforms after President Bill Clinton pitched for the use of school uniforms in his 1996 State of the Union. The move was met with mixed reactions as some parties saw it as a nuisance and additional problem for students while others viewed it as the solution to improve the educational system and performance of schoolchildren in the United States. What do you think about school uniforms? This list of advantages and disadvantages might help you decide on your stand on the matter.

List of Advantages of School Uniforms

1. They create uniformity.
There can be a better sense of unity because everyone will wear the same clothes and they have a single identity. Also, there will be less competition among children about who has the more expensive outfits or who looks better or is more fashionable.

2. They give a sense of belonging and pride.
A uniform is an indicator of what school you belong to. This is especially beneficial for students who study in schools that are well known or are considered to be a top school in the locality. You can proudly wear your uniform and ‘show’ other people that you attend a good school.

3. They promote school spirit.
When everyone is dressed the same and feels proud to be a part of their school, it boosts morale. The student body has a greater sense of togetherness and pride, boosting school spirit.

4. They allow parents to save on time and money spent on shopping for school clothes.
Usually, school uniforms can be worn for a whole year or two. This means there isn’t a need to spend for new clothes every semester and parents don’t have to deal with picky children who demand expensive brands or a certain style of clothing.

5. They help students spend less time and energy on choosing what to wear daily.
Getting ready for school in the morning can be easier and faster. Plus, there is less stress in figuring out the whole night what to wear the next day or in trying to keep up with peers and fashion trends. Instead, kids can focus on doing their homework or other beneficial recreational activities.

6. They take away social segregation.
The way you dress usually dictates what sort of click you belong to, such as the goths, jocks, nerds, and so on. If everyone is dressed the same, it can take away the need to put a label on each person and the tendency to just stick with your ‘crowd.’

7. They provide a safer school environment.
Since all students are dressed in uniforms, it can be easier to pinpoint who is not supposed to be in there. This also prevents students from showing their gang affiliations by wearing certain colors or articles of clothing.

8. They encourage students to express themselves in other ways.
Because kids can’t show their individuality through clothes, they will try to express themselves through other methods such as the arts, academics, sports, or extra-curricular school activities.

9. They take away the need to create so many policies related to dress codes.
Most schools that don’t have uniforms have a dress code. But figuring out what rules to include can be taxing because they need to identify what materials, lengths and types of skirts are okay, what sort of footwear are inappropriate, and so on. With uniforms, setting an acceptable standard is easier since there is just one type of outfit to base the policies on.

10. They prevent bullying.
The way children dress is one of the most common reasons for bullying. Kids who dress differently or who can’t afford branded clothes are made fun of and discriminated. School uniforms can help stop this issue.

List of Disadvantages of School Uniforms

1. They take away individuality and freedom of expression.
Learning how to express yourself is a right that most parents want their children to learn from a young age. By not allowing kids to show their individuality through the way they dress, they may feel oppressed and discouraged to develop their own personality.

2. They can be an additional cost.
If children go to school 5 or 6 days a week, they needs at least 2-3 sets of uniforms.

3. They can cause additional stress to students and parents.
In relation to the point above, if the family can’t afford several sets of uniforms, they may have to wash the uniforms when the kids get home. This can be tiresome and takes away time that could have been spent on schoolwork or rest.

4. They can cause discomfort.
Some kids may have allergies or feel uncomfortable due to tightness and rigidness. This can affect their mood and learning throughout the whole day.

5. They promote an intolerance of cultures.
Most uniforms are not designed according to the cultural dress of a population or they represent only one culture. Also, lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender students may become confused if they should wear a uniform that represents their inner sexual orientation or their external gender.

6. They cause resentment among students.
As children start to develop their own opinions, they won’t like being forced to do something they don’t want to. So requiring students to wear uniforms against their will can breed resentment towards the school, faculty, and even their parents.

7. They could cause outside bullying.
School pride and rivalry is something that some students take very seriously in a negative way. They can taunt or bully kids belonging to a rival school who they can easily identify through the uniforms.

8. They undermine free education.
Unless the school or government will sponsor the cost of uniforms, it will be the students’ families who need to shoulder the expense. And this contradicts the idea of free education since public schools are supposed to provide education at no cost to parents.

9. They become a band aid solution to bigger problems.
Poor academic performance, school violence, and decreasing attendance are some of the major issues schools face today. Opposing proponents question if school uniforms are really the answer to solving these problems.

10. They can hinder a child’s decision making skills.
Since you do not allow students to choose what they can wear, you are taking away their right to make a choice for themselves. This can disrupt the development of their ability to form their own opinions or make choices, and interfere with their transition into adulthood.
