Thought there might be some interest in seeing another veteran of World War I … from the other side. In terms of computers, I admit that I'm an idiot and hope that the photos show up. The pictures are of a 1910 DWM P08 that went off to war in 1914 with the Kürassier-Regiment „Königin“ (Pommersches) Nr. 2, serving in the 1st eskadron. Originally formed in 1717, the regiment fought in the Napoleonic wars, the Second Schleswig War, the Austro-Prussian War, and the Franco Prussian War. During this earlier period the Regiment adopted its signature silver helmet, which made an excellent target when they rode off into World War I. In fact, the Regiment took part in one of the first cavalry charges of the war on August 12, 1914. Even though there were other German cavalry regiments involed, The Battle of Haelen became known as the "Battle of the Silver Helmets." From Belgium, the Regiment moved to the Eastern Front in 1915, and then back to Belgium in 1917, fighting in Flanders before going home to Pomerania and being disband in 1919.
