On the Question of the Uniforms of Zbirna (Perekhidna) Stanytsia of  the Ukrainian Sich Riflemen in Vienna in 1914–1919

The article deals with the issue of uniformization of the soldiers and officers of the Zbirna, later Perekhidna  Stanytsia  (Assembly,  later  Transitional  Section)  of  the  Ukrainian  Sich  Riflemen (USS) in Vienna in 1914—1919. Based on archival documents, the article traces the evolution of the uniforms of the USS section in Vienna during the World War I: from the Austro-Hungarian Army uniform with Ukrainian national elements to the original uniform. With an engagement of museum items, the Perekhidna Stanytsia uniforms’ looks in 1918—1919 were identified. An attempt was made to reconstruct the appearance of an offecer of the Perekhidna Stanytsia in this period.
