      The skull & cross bones is an ancient emblem & even recently, if not currently, used by U.S. units.

      The skull & cross bones is an ancient emblem & even recently, if not currently, used by U.S. units. Oh, a really nice display & really enjoyed & researched it a bit.

      York, that site says that Deer island "Bones" holdings are just ruins now. "Bones" must have made George Bush treasurer! LMFAO!!

      Skull and Crossbones is the insignia of the Imperial German Brunswick 17th Hussars.

      The Kaiser was honorary colonel of a number of regiments, and it appears he loved to play dress up. In the album he is wearing the uniform of the First Lieb Hussars (Many regiments had double numbering, and I can't recall if the 1st Lieb Hussar was also the 17th Brunswick - I'll check that when I find the right reference book). In the first photo he is wearing a naval uniform.

      The Black Brunswickers wore the Totenkopf (Deaths Head) since the Napoleonic Wars, and the tradition was carried on in the 92nd Brunswick Infantry and the 17th Brunswick Hussars in the Prussian Army.

      It was also worn in the Napoleonic period by the British 17th lancers, and continues to be part of the insignia of the Royal Lancers - So, not exclusively German, and not indicative of a super rich frat boy club.

      Chris the 1st Leib Hussar Regt (17th Army Corps) was from Danzig-Langfuhr raised in 1741. The 17th Brunswick Hussar Regt. (10th Army Corps) was raised in 1809, according to Maj. Harrell's book on Regimental Steins.

      Thanks Militarist,

      I have a listing of Imperial German Regiments someplace, but based on your reference, it sounds like at least three regiments used the totenkopf - two hussar and one Infantry

      Very interesting dialogue & enjoyed to guys.

      Considering that the Kaiser was Queen Victoria's Grandson he was very involved in the Miltary in the UK. I know when he was born, he was left with a weaken arm and he alway had a complex about this. Apparently Edward VII detested him, he wasn't very well liked, even though he was the favorite Grandson of Queen Victoria.
    13. Chrisnp Chrisnp, 5 years ago
      Another grandson of Victoria was Czar Nicholas - The Kaiser and Czar called each other Willy and Nicky. Because he was an honorary colonel of British and Russian regiments, there are photos of the Kaiser in British and Russian Colonel's uniforms. Like I said, the Kaiser seemed to love to play dress-up. There is even a picture of him as a young man in a Scottish Kilt.

      A good reference book on this topic is, if I say so myself, "Death's Head, The History of the Military Skull & Crossbones Badge" (Éditions Chamerelle 2013)
