All the yellow "16" shoulder straps are Reichsheer and WH early style straps for Kav. Regt. 16. The blue tunic with "16" straps is for a pre-WW 1 Train-Abteilung 16 soldier.

Tunic is for Train (Logistics) and looks like a nice tunic. Any chance we can get some better pics of the jacket, especially collar and cuffs?
Cap is for postal service and does not go with the tunic.
WH early style straps for Kav. Regt. 16

Items are not matching.

A bit stained but nice. See if you can also get a picture of the interior to see if it is a private purchase piece (which I expect it is) or a Kammerstueck.

Unfortunately missing its Sergeanten buttons.

Hello,

Beautiful shoulder board selection!!

These are all Reichsheer straps to me. All for RR16.
The first 2 are 2 singles for an enlisted soldier sew in type. The next 2 are a nice pair for a Feldwebel. Notice the Reichsheer tress and somebody added an unteroffizier antwaerter loop on one of them. The next strap is moleskin for the summer tunic, and the last strap is the uniform cloth board for the M33 feldbluse!!

With reseda green tops and the uniform trouser grey bottoms the are all Reichsheer. WOW! Great selection for one unit!!!

Fred

Yes you may be right there. Those NCO boards are probably more likely RH than WH although these could have been worn in the thirties in WH.
