militaria item Franz Joseph memorial lapel button
- Austrian
This commemorates the death of the emperor on 21 November 1916. He had reigned from 1848 - longer than Queen Victoria! An impressive individual, much loved by his people, he led a relatively spartan life which was full of tragedy, what with the suicide of his son, the assassination of his wife and the death by firing squad of his brother.

militaria item KuK Cavalry Korps 'tinnie'
- Austrian
This cap badge, in what appears to be gilding metal, commemorates a cavalry unit, possibly of mixed German and Austrian composition, commanded by General Herberstein. The unit almost certainly served on the Romanian front with General von Mackensen, a Prussian general, in his Armeegruppe, which existed from 18/8/1915-1/1/1916.

militaria item KuK Central Alliance officer's Carpathian Campaign 'tinnie'
- Austrian
This commemorates the winter and spring campaign in the Carpathian mountains in 1915, when Austria battled manfully against Russian assaults, initially with very little German support. Austrian losses by this point reached nearly two million men in dead, wounded and taken prisoner.

militaria item KuK enamel 'tinnie' for Sanatorium Grimmenstein
- Austrian
This enamelled officer's badge would have been worn by personnel serving at the Grimmenstein Sanatorium in 1917. It is a magnificent example of what perhaps is the earliest display of Art Deco motif, predating the widespread use of this sort of imagery by some years.

militaria item KuK veteran's buttonhole
- Austrian
This, I am fairly sure, is an Austrian example, though there is an outside chance that it could be generic, produced for both Austrian and German veterans. There is apparently a Hungarian example, very similar to this but with Hungarian wording on the cross and more detail, which makes it more likely that this badge is Austrian.

militaria item KuK enamelled buttonhole, 19th infantry regiment?
- Austrian
This may be merely a commemorative buttonhole for the first two years of the war, but the central position of the number 19 on a red ground within a white cross and the colour of the wreath in white metal suggests that this might be Archduke Franz Ferdinand's regiment number 19, a Hungarian regiment based on Gyor.

militaria item KuK enamelled commemorative buttonhole
- Austrian
This has a German inscription to the effect of, 'Let your heart stick to God and your fists to the enemy'. It has a maker's mark, 'Kriegshilfs Bureau'. This badge (2.4cm across) would have been sold to raise money for the war effort. It is struck in gilding metal, with a black and mustard yellow (not as in photo) enamel finish.
