  1. Edelweiss could be private purchased too, that could be the case.
  2. Hello, do you have any of Württemberg Gebirgs Kanonen Batterie Nr 6? Thanks
  3. Hello, I am trying to gather information in a study of Württemberg Gebirgs Kanonen Batterie Nr.6 and wondered if anyone has photos of this unit that they would be willing to share? Thanks!
  4. Hello, I am trying to gather information in a study of the Württemberg Gebirgs Kanonen-Batterie Nr.6 and wondered if anyone has photos of this unit that they would be willing to post here? Thanks!
  5. Thanks! I was also wondering, what was Gebirg Artillerie Kanonen Btr 10? Prussian? Bavarian? Württemberg? Thanks
  6. Were German Alpenkorps soldiers who were also D O A V members allowed to use their D O A V Edelweiß in the military? Thanks.
  7. Anyone else have photos of Bergmützen they could share? They are neat caps
  8. Those first 2 are nice, but something odd..I thought Württemberg Bergmütze only had wool visors..Since they are private purchased models, anything is possible! Maybe they had a 3rd option, black leather, grey leather and wool unlike Bavaria and Prussia where they had black and grey visor.
  9. There were Prussian Gebirgs Artillery units that wore them. One of the Bataillons in the 3rd JR Rgt was Prussian, they too wore them. Prussia had a good number of Gebirgs units. Prussia had atleast 2-3 units of these types -> Gebirgs Artillery, Gebirgs MW, Gebirgs MG. @The Prussian Green for the 3rd JR Rgt, red as you said above for Gebirgs Artillery. I was told Gebirgs MG (Minus the 2 komps in the W.G.B) and Gebirgs MW didn't wear Bergmützen
  10. I believe May 1915 was when Gebirgs Artillery got their Bergmützen
  11. So Prussian and Württemberg Gebirgs Artillery had red piping on their Bergmützen while Bavarian Gebirgs Artillery had black piping on their Bergmützen?
  12. I've heard the ones you said that are in the Kraus book are both reproductions
  13. Hmm strange, A friend told me what I said, he said he read it from Kraus book But I am sure that Bavaria didn't just use black
  14. Kraus book is where I got it from. There was green, black and red. Green was for truppen from 3rd Jäger Rgt, Bavarian and Prussian Gebirgs MG, Württemberg Gebirgs truppen (Both Schützen and MG used the green, minus their Gebirgs Artillery). Black was for Gebirgs Artillery, so Bavarian, Prussian and Württ Gebirgs Artillery would use the black. Red was for Gebirgs Minenwerfer, so Bavarian and Prussian Gebirgs Minenwerfer would use red. Württemberg didn't have Gebirgs Minenwerfer. As for the caps them selves, Bavaria and Prussia's Bergmütze had a vulcanfiber visor painted feldgrau, while Württemberg's Bergmütze had wool visor. There were private purchased version for both. Both came with a full liner with leather sweat band, and air vents. The issued version had partial lining and a cloth sweatband. #1 Green piping #2 Red piping #3 Black piping #4 Green piping #5 Black piping on both caps
