Many mem­bers are very inter­est­ed in uni­forms. The Soci­ety’s first pres­i­dent, Preben Kan­nik, drew uni­form plans for books and mag­a­zines. In addi­tion, between 1945 and 1947, he drew a num­ber of black-and-white boards with asso­ci­at­ed col­or descrip­tions. How­ev­er, the time was not ripe for the con­tin­u­a­tion of the work. Nev­er­the­less, he pro­duced a series of col­or charts and pro­duced the uni­form post­cards “Danske Reg­i­menter”. In 1967, the ground­break­ing release “Alver­dens Uni­forms” fol­lowed.

Two of our mem­bers have excelled them­selves with their illus­tra­tions. Svend Højberg Nielsen pro­duced a large num­ber of col­or schemes cov­er­ing 13 nations. The start­ing point was his great knowl­edge of husars.
Chr. Wür­gler Hansen has pro­duced many fine illus­tra­tions that have adorned both
The Soci­ety’s mag­a­zine and spe­cial num­bers. In addi­tion, they have found their way to our exhi­bi­tions, and many are used in pub­li­ca­tions out­side the Soci­ety.
