Caps of the Soviet Army Introduction Due to the large number of caps in this category, I have subdivided the Army cap section into the four uniform periods described on my Uniform Periods page to the left. All caps on this page were worn during this period. However, certain uniform elements including caps often extended into succeeding uniform regulations. In most cases, I have placed these caps according to the uniform period in which they were first introduced.
A thumbnail image accompanies each cap description.

Some sizes of button are rarer than others. Medium-sized buttons are the most common, and the following is a guide to the rarity of other sizes of British Army button – Screw-fit buttons are the rarest, they are used to secure Officers bullion wire shoulder boards on Number 1 Dress and perhaps other uniforms such as Mess Dress depending on regimental dress tradition.
This means only 2 on each Officer’s Number 1 Dress uniform. For most regiments, Number 1 Dress went out routine use at the outbreak of World War 2, and relatively few Officers now possess Number 1 Dress. Screw-fit buttons tend not to be used on Other Ranks’ uniforms. Small buttons 15mm and smaller are fairly scarce. There are only 2 small-sized buttons on a peaked cap – used to secure the chin-strap. Scots Guards Number 1 Dress Caps do not have chin-straps or buttons.
Small buttons are particularly scarce for Scottish regiments as most of these regiments wear glengarries, Tam o’Shanters, or Atholl bonnets, none of which have cap buttons. Large buttons 23mm and larger are fairly scarce because they are only worn on the great-coat and the front fastening of Guards scarlet tunics and Officers Service Dress jackets.
There were generally no buttons on the cuffs. The lining was probably a cotton osnaburg. The distinctive point about the first pattern jacket, and the feature that distinguished it from the Type II, was that it was trimmed on the collar, shoulder straps and cuffs with either tape or piping.

Thanks for sharing your sartorial knowledge, Leo! It might at first seem simple — there are buttons. The buttons go in the holes. A Quick History Lesson and a Fat King Historically, in the early years of the suit as everyday menswear, it appears there were no formal buttoning rules. Look to trade magazines and illustrations from the earlier part of the 20th century, and one sees jackets with between one and five buttons, each buttoned in a manner that suited the personality of the wearer or the cut of the garment.
But much of this changed with a king who was too fat to button his jacket. According to the lore of menswear, in the early s King Edward VII started the trend of leaving the bottom button of a suit undone. Apparently, he grew so rotund that he was unable to fasten the bottom button of his waistcoat and jacket. To not offend the king, those associated with him started doing the same.
The custom then gradually spread the world round as England was still largely an imperial power with great influence across the globe. Whether this was started because of King Edward, or simply because of evolving fashion, it remains the rule today. A suit should always remain buttoned until one sits, when it usually becomes necessary to unfasten the jacket. Once one stands again, the jacket should be refastened. But as any gentleman knows, there are exceptions to every rule.
Here it is, readers: I suppose it could also be his natural hair that he had somehow bleached white, but that would be an even stranger explanation. So I held off on writing a post about The Braid, and kept searching. We do know, however, that John Andre belonged to the 7th Regiment of Foot, also known as the Royal Fusileers or Fuzileers, if you use the preferred 18th century spelling.
The National Button Society now has more than 3, members on four continents, with 39 of the 50 states represented by state and local button clubs.

About attacking and murdering people in my life About the war against me Mark Rich, see The Hidden Evil , has a section on his site he calls the war against me. Although I have not written much about the war against me untill now I decided to put all information online about the crimes and cruelties that are committed against me, and the crimes committed against others, including children. To many people these attacks will look unreal and caused by my imagination.
But unfortunately everything is very real. These attacks are the result of 10 years of resisting the every day increasing more horrible crimes of our national secret services. People claiming explicitely these kind of attacks are not possible are probably part of the sick network. This is how this works. Not only many innocent people are attacked but they are surrounded by attackers, some claiming to be victims as well, spreading disinformation, to make the real victims look bad.
Active Denial System i. Despite all attacks I manage to live a life.

Doppellitze, circa WWI officer with Litzen In 19th century German armies, Guard and other elite regiments wore lengths of double braid Doppellitze encircling all or most of the collar as a mark of distinction. By the middle of World War I these ornate collars had been reduced to an embroidered representation of short lengths of braid joined at the ends, sewn to patches worn at the front of the collar. When the Reichsheer was established in as Germany’s first national army  Litzen were prescribed as the universal collar device for all personnel other than generals, and the Third Reich continued the practice.
Officers’ M35 Litzen Dress Field and service On the dress tunic Waffenrock and the later “ornamented” uniform, the Litzen were embroidered in fine aluminum thread on a patch of Abzeichentuch in the wearer’s Waffenfarbe , or branch color; the backing also showed through in the space between the two Litzen, the Mittelstreife. On field and service uniforms, beginning in late , the patch Patten was dark bottle-green to match the collar; the Waffenfarbe “showed through” in fact colored cord was sewn into the center strip of each braid, the Litzenspiegel.
For enlisted men service Litzen were machine-woven in silver-grey rayon; officers’ were embroidered more elaborately in white silk or aluminum thread, and were somewhat larger to match their higher collars. NCOs’ M35 Litzen and Tresse Dress Field Non-commissioned officers Unteroffiziere wore standard enlisted collar patches but were distinguished by a strip of 9mm silver-grey diamond-woven rayon braid Tresse sewn around the collar’s front and lower edges, except on the dress Waffenrock where the Tresse was bright aluminum and encircled the collar’s upper edge.
Enlisted field Litzen By the fast-growing Heer had found that it was impractical, for the enlisted field uniform, to manufacture and stock a multitude of collar patches in assorted Waffenfarben which also had to be sewn on and frequently changed by unit tailors. Accordingly, new universal Litzen were introduced with the Litzenspiegel and Mittlestreife woven in dark green to match the backing patch, and which could be applied at the factory; Waffenfarbe was now displayed on the shoulder-straps, which simply buttoned on and were easily switched.
With the wartime change to lower-visibility insignia enlisted Litzen were woven in matte “mouse-grey” with field-grey stripes, which were at first sewn to green collar patches as before but increasingly directly to the collar, which beginning in was made in feldgrau like the uniform; grey Patten were never produced. The troops however preferred the green patches and collars if they had or could get them, especially on “clean” uniforms for walking-out; and long-service veterans took particular pride in pre Litzen with colored stripes.
Marksmanship Roy’s oldest friend, trusted aide, and devoted bodyguard, Lt. Hawkeye’s calm, collected demeanor and remarkable sharpshooting skills earn her the respect of her fellow officers.

My name is Robert J. I have spent years of research along with collaborating with a host of collectors and professors of universities into ancient world cultures and religions. This enabled me to bring the hidden intentional meanings behind the symbols which were masked in an artistry allusion by Robert Scot and his Philadelphia Artisans. For historical relic researchers and button collectors this would act as a starting point avenue for their own research into certain symbol origins for 18th century Rattlesnake, George Washington inaugural, and New Nation Tribute buttons.
This caused a significant devaluation of American Relics and has remained so to the common citizenry who collect 18th century objects. I believe George Washington used the Scottish Gentry of high society allies from the American Revolution who formed a Council of Enlightened Visionaries to help shape the dynamics of a much needed new style of societal governance.
Only Robert Scot was granted the Royal authority and trained from childhood to use the Scottish Royal Culture Symbols of the House of Stuart in the commissioned artistry he produced. By whom in Europe?

Some are more stiff than others, and I will price accordingly, and at or below our cost. The best ones are flexible and in overall good shape. Others seem more stiff. However, I have not checked the snaps or seams, but don’t sell these for anyone to wear. I can not guarantee them for that use. Some were stored with talcum powder to keep them from sticking together, so you will need to take a little time to wash it off.
