Hello! Long time Lurker, first time poster.
I'm wondering if there are specific (historic) patterns of Austrian Knots for the various branches of the various militaries?
I've seen what appears to be some similarities between regiments of various branches (say, 17th, 18th, and 19th cavalry regiments, or the 4th and 5th infantry regiments)in various countries, and I noticed the US Army had separate designs for Officers and General officers, and the UK at the time of the Boer War had at least two different types for their officers, and was wondering if, by chance, there's a site or sites, or a book or two detailing the various differences.
I don't mind the time frame, and any little bit helps, since I'm writing a story and wanted something other then pins or colors do denote branch.
I'm tired, so sorry about the rambling.
