Cheers. My Grandfather was Cav and had some friends keep him around and employed. Ended up at Paderborn prior to the action.
..invited my father to mount a horse and ride. Father rode the horse around the paddock, then jumped him over the fence! It was great. He hadn’t been on a horse for 20 years!
Officers and senior NCOs in the Reichswehr were all horsemen.
Jordan, congrats on picking up the Kar98b! Now to just outfit it with a reasonably priced lid & sling...
