SARGE Posted November 23, 2018 Share #1 Posted November 23, 2018 Gents, This is a circa 1898 Bayern Gendarmerie Sergenten Uniform. This dark green uniform was worn by a Gendarmerie Sergeant of the Royal Bavarian Rural Police during the period of time that the Kingdom of Bavaria existed prior to the end of WWI. The rural Gendarmerie remained largely unchanged at the end of WWI and these uniforms continued in wear until circa 1936. The German Gendarmerie were considered to be a part of the military establishment but as policemen they did not have to be counted in the 100,000 man Reichswehr. Their weapons did have to be counted and reported to the Allied Control Commission however. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
