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.

testimonials

The package arrived today, and the two items are nice. The Mother Cross actually looks a lot better in person than in the pics.

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.
