Title KuK Cavalry Korps 'tinnie'
Nationality Austrian
Period 1915
Price £30.00

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.

There is an Austrian eagle on one side and a German Imperial one on the other. There are unit designations in Roman numerals at the top of the badge. The pin is missing, but otherwise the badge is still quite crisp.
