  1. Hello! That´s strange. Cuirassiers had a line-eagle. This is a dragoon-eagle. Jäger zu Pferde (mounted Jäger) has this eagle. But Jäger z.Pf. 1-7 had white eagles. Jäger z.Pf. 8-13 had yellow eagles, but enlisted men had a black leather-helmet and officers a black helmet.. No tombak helmets! The cloverleave cocades were worn by Jg.z.Pf 1-7. It looks like a mix between regiments 1-7 and 8-13... Maybe there was a war-time pattern with that symbols and made from tombak...

    I only have the photos I shared above. Most of the badges were worn at the eastern front.

  9. Kraus writes, that first the Alpenkorps was equipped with the "Gebirgshose". (17.8.11915). The Sturmbataillone recieved their leather-patched-trousers with ordre from 2.1.1917 (Kraus, vol. I, page 560). You wrote, a couple of photos were from 1918. In may 1918, the Gen.Kdo.59 was in the area of Cirey.

  11. Yes, you won´t see leather-trousers on the western-front usually. Mostly they were worn by mountain troops.
  12. They have leather-knees! Sturmbataillon!
  13. Hi Chris! Yes, you are right, but your focus was on Sturmbataillon, not divisionally Sturmabteilungen... The official Sturmbataillon for Armee-Abt. A was the bavarian Sturmbataillon 15, raised xmas 1916. Another fact is, that the Armee-Abt. A had 2 Lehr-Abteilungen with 60-80 men each. They teached the "Stosstrupps" of the regiments. Each regiment had 60-80 men in their Stosstrupps. Maybe your photo shows one of those?
