Men at arms

IR 83

An irregular entry follows in all respects. There is no cap badge in the background photo, just an Easter greeting written on the board. But Easter is over, so why this picture? And how does it relate to the badge?

Solution: the cloak.

Of course, the real reason for the pairing is that the picture is special and the badge is beautiful. It is the characteristic badge of the 83rd West Hungarian Infantry Regiment. The 83rd regiment of the “Vazs county” bucks was headquartered in Szombathely. It is interesting that the German-speaking population of the surrounding Burgenland areas (today in Austria) also preserves the memory of the regiment. They also have a traditionalist group.
