Hello everybody,

I have a bronze kind of souvenir with the inscription "ERINNERUNG AN MEINE RS", and in French "SOUVENIR DE MON ER". It shows 3 German soldiers in combat scene. What is the "RS" ?

Thanks, happy new year.

    Could the "German" soldiers actually be Swiss ones?

    RS - Rekrutenschule (military training school)
    ER - école de recrues

    Thanks. The object indeed came from Switzerland. It seems that they use the type of helmet that we recognize as "german".
