UNIFORMS OF THE
DANISH ARMY AND NAVY
BY Christian F. Romers
In 1910, the Danish Army was wearing much the same uniform as it had worn forty-six years earlier during the 2nd Schleswig War. The field uniform remained practical like other European armies of the period. Unlike a growing number of armies such as those of Great Britain, Germany and Austria, no drab field uniforms had been introduced. The Guard Corps however did start wearing a grey green field uniform starting in 1909 (which may have been the impetus for this publication). As they were neutral during the First World War there were few changes in uniform and only in 1923 was a khaki service uniform introduced but it wasn't generally issued to the army as a whole until the mid 1930s.
The Danish Navy, like most navies, were dressed similarly to Britain's Royal Navy with national differences.
This publication was produced as concertina folded plates and appear very similar in style and execution to those of Moritz Ruhl.
