The Leutnant of  the Body-Guard Hussars instructs his little brother in the proper way to hold his rifle while the family’s gardener watches with a smile.  Because the older brother is garrisoned in Potsdam, he has brought a real grenadier officer’s cap from the First Foot-Guard Regiment, also garrisoned in Potsdam.  A child’s version of the First Foot-Guard regimental uniform could be bought in 1914 in toyshops in every corner of Germany. 

 ”The First Foot-Guards” were the equal of the British Grenadier Guards, the senior infantry regiments in both armies.  The ”sentry box” – Schilderhaus – is painted in the colors of the Grand Duchy of Baden as is the pedal car, a brass model kit in Z scale by the Texas firm of Micron Art = micronart.com. The kit is not especially difficult to assemble but the finished model is quite small – 17 millimeters long. This Z scale model is nicely appropriate as a child’s pedal car in HO scale.
