  1. Ostuf , Thanks for your answer . as i suspected ,the regiment 93 was not a common one . The Kavallerie Schuetzen Regiments were dismounted Cavalry .the German Army began in 1915 to employ cavalry in the trenches and in 1916 to dismount regiments .then appeared a new type of Cavalry the Cavalry Rifles . their regiments were of bataillon size , three or four squadrons ,equivalent to infantry company in number and a Machine Gun squadron with 6 Mgs and four minenwerfer . apart ,normally the regiment possesed also a mounted platoon of 25 men . The 93 K S R judging by the number was a unit raised from the 93 kavallerie regiment which was a war raised unit . i will search about the 93 .to me it was a Landwehr unit .
  2. Ostuf , To me is also Werther but what is strange is 93 kavallerie regiment . doesnt said anymore ? Landwehr Reserve or Schutzen ?
  3. Dante : The 9th JzPferde regiment was deployed in Ukraine between May of 1918 and the Armnistice.After a slow retreat returned to his garnison in Insterburg in good order the 22th of Februar of 1919 . then it was disbanded . If the FreiwilligerBtl was organizes in Insterburg probably the JzPf was the base
  4. The blue and white lace is the Bayerische kragenborte.exclusive of the Bavarian Army if you look closely you can observe that the colours are in lozenge shape. the bavarian collar lace was not weared during 1914 it was introduced during 1915 and later was reduced to the front of the collar
  5. filfoster, The Colonello in command of a Brigade weared between 1916 and March of 1918 on the cuffs a rectangular insignia made of silver lace of about 12 cm high and 4cm wide .placed over a green grey patch . from 1918 onwards the rank was renamed Brigadier and the lace on the cuffs placed on a red cloth patch. the three silver stars surrounded with gold corresponds to a colonel in command of a regiment .if the whole is placed over red cloth .Take a look to : Gradi del Regio Esercito Wikipedia.
  6. Gentlemen , The officer portrayed wears the type of feldachselstucke .introduced into the Prussian Army for the campaign of 1866 . later these shoulderboards were used with the service dress . The Landwehr cavalry weared blue and not light blue tunics and interims rocke .with the interimsrock litzen were not used . the pic is from between 1866 and 1889 , judging by the type of SBs but the EK II situates the date more precisely between 1870 and 1889. A 1813 EKII is exclude by way of the age of the officer and his rank
  7. Ostuf : For more data go to www denkmalprojekt .org 2 garde feldartillerie regiment is in German but with a little help you can find much useful data there
  8. Canaris no , he was a smaller man . perhaps and only perhaps Doenitz .Leutnant z see until March 1916 . when the war erupted he was on board of the Breslau . much later he requests his transference to submarines .
  9. Truppenubungsplatz Juterbog .or Juterbog West also Schiessplatz Juterbog . is the place were the photo was taken . The garnison of the "Garde 2 FAR was Potsdam . Today still exists military facilities in Juterbog . During the Empire the the Artillerie Schiesschule was relocated in 1890 from Berlin to Juterbog ,65 km south west from Berlin .
  10. Trying to recreate an uniform

  11. The six men with a MG wears a lower cockade on their cap bands which appears to be bavarian of one of the models in use ,that is white with a light blue center . but they not wear the bavarian collar borte .
