Men at arms

IR 50 (3)

The various badges of the 50th Infantry Regiment are accidentally mounting in the posts. Now the regiment’s repeated participation was justified by the regiment’s number to be seen on the wearing photo.

At the end of the war, the visible sign of the infantry regiments number became a mandatory part of the uniform. On the left side of the cap, different colored canvas numbers were sewed. The coloring of the numbers indicated the various troops. However, instead of colored numbers, the soldiers often sewed pressed plate numbers, as can be seen in the attached photo.

The cap badge added to the post shows the regimental number in the form of the flag that has been presented several times. The flag was enameled in the same color as the lapel of the regiment. In this case, green. The other two plate badges of the 50th Infantry Regiment can be viewed here and here.
