Hello folks,

Here's a nice emsemble I came across at the Askeri Müze in Istanbul. It is the uniform of the 3. Garde Ulanen Regt with Tschapka...

I know what you're thinking, shame they've lost the "Feldzeichen" oval cockade. But no, it's turned up as a nice collar button...

...and the caption showing the owner was one, Ekrem Akomer. Anyone know anything more about him?

Enjoy!

Chris

Fellow member Khukri has kindly mailed me to point out a problem with the uniform. I hadn't noticed but of course the 3GUR had a white metal Gurads Eagle not yellow metal as here. Can anyone explain the use of a yellow metal one here?

Also found some more information on owner here- http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 0&t=176013

It seems he was aide to Liman von Saunders, and also that he served in the 2.Brandenburgisches Ulanen Regiment Nr.11.

Cheers
Chris

Francis has a very sharp eye but to me this looks silver with a lot of grime.

They've also converted the caplines to a sword knot.

Unless it is extremely faded, the Rabatte appears to be white (?). Pity about the eagle being legless, too.

Gentlemen:
My mail to chrispaulodale: so: nothing wrong with my eyes 8-)

quote:
I have to mail you that your posting has errors:

3.GUR has a yellow Paraderabatte (not a white one).

The piece in the Ulanka colar is not a Kokarde (Cocade) but the "Feldzeichen" or "National". (Prussian colours: White with black centre).

1. and 3. GUR have the white metal/Siver Eagle Wappen with Silver Guard Star.
2.GUR has the guilded/yellow Eagle with silver Guard Star (Garde Stern)

The Kokarde (Reichskokarde Black-White-Red) is located at the right sidepost of the chinscale.

Paraderabatte:
1.GUR: White
2.GUR: Red
3.GUR: Yellow

Regards,

Francis

Francis is correct. As Joe writes, the yellow colour on the eagle may just be heavy grime, but the Rabatte looks definitively white...
Here is a 3GUR Tschapka:
