" Honvéd Memories "
Hungarian Honvéd soldiers in an arranged photograph. The soldiers with the stripe marking on the lower part of the  tunic´s arm were called  "Karpaszományos honvéd", witch meant that the Honvéd conscript had obtained a higher education, degree or had graduated before the start of the service. Usually this meant a rapid advancement to Private1.class (Őrvezető), Corporal (Tizedes) and Lance corporal (Szakaszvezető) after the basic training. Some Karpaszományos honvéd were even eligible for reserve officers training.
