Generalmajor Béla Sorsich von Severin

Generalmajor Béla Sorsich von Severin pictured wearing the "Hungarian" General Officers' Gala Dress. As sometime erroneously stated, this uniform was not only worn by former colonels commanding Hungarian Hussar regiments. It could be worn by any General Officer from the Hungarian administered part of the Monarchy including General officers serving with the Hungarian Honvéd. General Sorsich was commanding the Royal Hungarian 80th Landwehr Infantry Brigade in 1914 and finished the war as a General der Infanterie and the Military Commandant in Kassa.
