Yes, he is British, but no on the naval uniform.

Could it be a (relatively) young Robertson by chance? I'm going by the shape and size of the moustache here, from a picture of him in a book...

Sorry I did not reply sooner. No, the man is not Robertson.

Hint #1: Think Canada.

Hmm well I don't really know Nemo I just thought his uniform looked maybe German but I don't know enough about uniforms yet to know. (Probably angling for a clue too )

I see
Definitely, he's German - and well known for his 'hey-did-you-notice-how-cool-I-look' uniforms.

How's that for a clue?

Good Lord Marc you just described 99% of the Prussian officer corps --- or Korps rather ...


I know it is not Hindeburg or Ludendorff ... dunno what von Mackensen looked like back then ... and it does not look like the Kaiser


Nah well I think I will go with Kaiser Wilhem ... as it is the only guy I can think of that comes even close..

Yeah, good point! If German service and field uniforms were rather sober, that was not quite the case with the formal ones - but hey French and British bicornes weren't that subdued either

That said, this character repeatedly went over the board in this matter, making him one of the most favoured target for caricature.

Yes MM might be right there. I feel like I've seen him before.

Hermann Goering liked fancy unforms but I don't think it looks like him.
