Question for Russian Uniform Grogs


Recommended Posts

I am googling like mad, but can't find any detailed pictures of the early war collar tab devices - the little metal squares and triangles worn on the tabs. Can anyone help out?

Also some other questions

- did the early war pilotka come only unpiped, or did officers have branch/gold piping?

- did the khaki collar tab as worn on the shirt have a branch or gold piping for officers?

Thanks in advance.

for rectangular ones

for square ones

You can even buy some of them there ;)

AFAIK the triangular rank devices were iddentical to the reactangular and square ones

- did the early war pilotka come only unpiped, or did officers have branch/gold piping?

Since 1935, officer's pilotkas were piped in branch color (rapsberry for infantry, red for artillery etc.) Enlisted ranks always wore unpiped pilotkas

- did the khaki collar tab as worn on the shirt have a branch or gold piping for officers?

AFAIK they didn't
