Hi there

Please, I am looking for maybe extra information that may be gleaned from this photo of
Janos Palffy,
platoon leader (zugsführer), Royal Hungarian Honved, LIR = Landswehr Infantry Regiment, he was in the 11th
company of regiment #18, He was born in 1890 in Gasztony, Vas County, Hungary, he died on January 16, 1916.
(information from the Kramerius site)

Unfortunately the photo had been stored in the attic for many years and is some what damaged.

Does the uniform reflect this regiment, also would he have been a 'Hussar' being mounted on the horse.
