Serbian Cadets, I think not

Post  Sean on Tue 11 Aug 2009, 4:42 am

Captioned as Serbian soldiers, but more likely Austro-Hungarian rifle club?
Any ideas, please?

Most likely Austro-hungarian. Rifles looks like Werndl - jeager model.

Almost certainly a rifle club or independent militia

Overall style looks very Austrian, and Jaeger to be exact.

But those are not regulation Austrian coats, or hats, or whatever is stuck under their throats.

There were plenty of citizen militias in the Austrian historical tradition, but I can see that influence spreading to Hungary and Serbia to some extent. Think "urban" and "middle class."
