Thanks for posting this link mconrad. One particularly interesting (if little known) group shown is the dozen photographs of Esthonian cavalry in hussar uniforms c1922. Preben Kannik's classic little book "Military Uniforms of the World" has a colour illustration showing one of these dashing horsemen. He suggests that the dress uniform so closely resembled that of the Czarist Russian hussar regiments that it probably was taken from old stores. Only the headdress appears to be a new pattern.

Actually, your particular pic might be any one of several such postings on Flickr by THardy.

Also, notice the particular softness of the boot leather.

And I wonder what the armband is on the middle fellow.
