Flag[edit]

That war flag is wrong. That was just the austro-hungarian navy jack. The common army as well as the k.k. Landwehr always used the yellow flag with the imperial coat of arms (Eagle with two heads and the coat of arms of the house habsburg-lorraine). In the middle of WWI they started to create a new war flag that showed the Coat-of-arms of both parts of the monarchy together, yet it was never in use practically since the war was over.

The Landwehr was k.k. kaiserlich-königlich, in english imperial-royal. Different to k.u.k royal (könglich) don't mean royal hungerian, it meant royal bohemian.—Preceding unsigned comment added by 140.78.166.65 (talkcontribs) 08:12, 1 September 2006

Eh? The definitions of k.u.k., k.k. and k.u. given in the article are correct. Troops conscripted from Bohemia would either have been inducted into the Common Army (i.e. k.u.k.) or the k.k. Landwehr. Sir Andrew de Harcla 15:11, 2 October 2006 (UTC)

k.k. meant kaiserlich / königlich - and königlich stands for the Kingdom of Bohemia!!

k.u.k. stand for kaiserlich und königlich. Imperial and royal. Imperial for Austria, royal for Hungary. In case of the Austrian Landwehr the royal stood for Bohemia.--Tresckow 12:26, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

The US equivalents for the Austro-Hungarian ranks are correct. The english or Great Britain equivalents could be addet if requestet

('til 1913 the Feldwebel was the highest NCO rank and sowith not a simple sergeant)

There is an error in the displayed medal collection. Number two medals from the right has the wrong ribbon. The ribbon belongs to the medal of Emperor Franz Joseph's jubilee in 1898. Just one small detail. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pyxpyxen (talkcontribs) 18:23, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
