The nascent Czechoslovakian army wore a mix of Austrian, French, Italian, and Russian uniforms until the early 1920's when the new khaki uniforms were issued. The first 2 photos show ex-Austrian uniforms being worn, with new insignia, while the bottom photos show the new khaki dress, which had been influenced partly by the contemporary US Army uniform, with the peaked cap influenced by the British model.

With a fold down collar? I'm thinking not Amercan.

And in case you haven't seen pigs fly, here are some Czechs in sun helmets.
(Czech legionnaires in transit from Siberia through the Philippines on the way back to Europe.)
