They sported some magnificent hats. We would do well to readopt the wearing of such headgear to help speed us into the glorious tommorrow!
Sadly, the hats of modern Russian Army are no longer magnificent. They are only ridiculous.
Look at other europeans army`s hats in this time, then we will discuss about glorious tomorrow.
Very interesting post!
Wonderful, rare pictures. Thank you.
Back when the Russian Army had uniforms that were fitted properly and looked good.
I agree, at least some of the uniforms, and most of the hats, look a lot better than the ones they use today. That big old brim they use, makes ’em look like they have small heads or something.
The hats are no surprised. It’s been said before; if the Cold War had came to down to hats, the Russians would have won it hands down.
It all came to an inglorious end.
