Line Cavalry, Imperial Russian Army, World War One
Bombardier Layer, 20th Horse Artillery

Very little, other than his shoulder boards, distinguishes this bombardier from any other mounted soldier. The sword and pistol are standard issue. To his left is a Danish manufactured M1904 Madsen light machine gun of the type issued to some cavalry regiments before 1914.

Trooper, 16th Tverskoi Dragoon Regiment

The 16th Dragoons served with the Army of the Caucasus. This trooper wears a fleece cap, cowl and gloves in cool weather; his greatcoat is strapped to the front of the saddle. The horse furniture is the standard issue brown leather with saddlebags at the rear. Regular cavalry carried the bayonet, which can be seen attached to the sword scabbard in the ‘1881 method’.

Captain, 5th Alexandriyski Hussar Regiment (‘Immortal Hussars’)

The unit was known as the ‘Immortal Hussars’ after a line in its regimental song. This officer is very much in the wartime fashion with his black leather jacket cut like the uniform tunic, gloves, and regimental breeches striped with silver lace. The brown leather equipment is regulation issue of the 1912 pattern. Again, note the hussar boots with rosettes.
