Re: Uncle in Uniform?
It is the standard dress for the Geimensame Armee, the common army of the Austrian empire which was recruited from throughout the empire for the first world war.
I am not able to identify the helmet, it is not very clear in the photo, nor in color.I'd guess probably a cavalry unit, but not at all sure.

group member can identify it for me.
