His Majesty's Cossack Regiment in Courbevoie), Russia (GIM, Museum of Artillery, Engineering Troops and Communications Troops of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, Tula Museum of Weapons, Museum of the History of the Don Cossacks, etc.), starting from the end of the XVI century and ending with the Civil War in Russia.
