    Unknown arm insignia

    Hello Von Thronstahl. That make sense , the shape of the collar patches is those of the French organized Legion Tchecoslovaque.certainl y the uniforms looks like AH but the man in the centre wears what appears to be a French vareuse bleu horizon ,the badge is rare the czechs used an oval one in dark blue cloth with the capitals C S in silver. the badge showed appears as a polish eagle over a pointed cloth shield .
  11. Nice coffee grinder . as the French used to call the MG 08 . the pic must be of the very beggining of the war . the men belonged to the 106 Infantry regiment ,a Saxon unit. note the cuffs and the monogram over the shoulderboards , the crowned G of KIng Georg .

  13. Hello , The pic of a group of Bavarian soldiers and a few civilians is of wartime , there is not any officer in the pic . regarding to date the pic could be of end of 1914 or early 1915 . One man is a jaeger senior NCO , the others mostly infantrymen . one man wears What appears to be the uniform of the Leib Regiment .
