School Uniform: Hungarian Military Schools

Figure 1.--This Hungarian boy was photograpohed in Budapest during 1911. We have no information about the boy, but believe he is wearing his military school uniform. Notice is younger brother with closely cropped hair wearing a sailor suit.

Hungarian Military Schools

Hungary was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until 1918. We know that some Hungarian boys attended military school. We do not, however, know if there were military schools actually located in Hungary and conducted in the Hungarian language or if Hungarian cadets attended Austrian schools and studied in German. At this time HBC has little information on the military and educational system of Austro-Hungary. As a result of the revolution of 1848, the Empire was made a dual monary with the Emperor holding both the Hungarian and Austrian crowns. We are unsure, however, to what extent the reforms were really window dresing as opposed to fundamental reforms.

Austrian Military Schools

HBC has also begun to collect information on Austrian military schools, although like the case for Hungary, we still have only limited information.
