Bicycle Infantry of the Hungarian Red Army

[Photoalbum] Emlékeim a Tanácsköztársaság idejéböl. / Emlékeim a Tanácsköztársaság idejéből. [My Memories From the Time of The Hungarian Soviet Republic.]

Amateur photoalbum. More than hundred black and white, vintage photographs. Each image with typed label and in painted frames. In red leatherette binding with handmade illustration of front panel, the coat of arms of the Red Bicycle Infantry. 45 album card leaves, separated with tracing paper. In very good condition.

The photoalbum was compiled by a soldier of the battalion of the bicycle infantry of the Hungarian Red Army. Contains five original, vintage images from 1919, among them the moment when the bicycle battalion is heading to the front in May 1919; a group portrait with the comrades (Februry 1919), and members of the directory.

Two images are showing the reunions of the veterans of the battles twenty and forty years later. The majority of the images from 1960–1964 showing the annual commemorations at the memorial for the seven soldiers who died during the battle at Hernádszurdok, and two images showing the battlefield.

The Hungarian Red Army was the fighting force of the short-lived Hungarian Soviet Republic in 1919. At the downfall of the state the Hungarian Red Army battled with the Romanian and the Czechoslovak forces, the battle at Hernádszurdok was part of these fights.
