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

    What are you looking for exactly? By the way, you´ve got a real nice photo! He wears the badges from: Korps Hoffmann, Deutsche Südarmee and austrian 7th army

    Hello! These photos are from my collection. Enjoy!
  8. 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. In Sept./Nov. 1918 the Armee-Abteilung A was: VII.AK, XV.RK, Gen.Kdo.59, austrian IX.AK Units since 15.9.1918 13.ID (until 15.9.1918), 75.RD (7.10.-5.11.1918), 61.Ldw.Brig., 21.LD, 96.ID, 92.Res.Jg.Brig., 25.ID (18.-25.9.1918), 301.ID, 39.RD, hungarian 37.Honved-Div. What about a close-up of the helmet cover in #204, please?
  9. Troops with mountain-uniforms were 26.1.1917: 9.Armee (LII.AK, 217.ID, parts of 89.ID, 218.ID, parts of bav. 12.ID) 11.Armee (Gren.Rgt.11, Garde-Jäger-Btl., Res.Inf.Rgt.21, Jg.Btl.9 and 12, Inf.Rgt.45, Res.Jg.Btl.11-13, 15, 19, Inf.Rgt.146, Schallmeßtrupp 4, Garde-Schützen-Btl. + units since 29.7.1918: Jg.Btl.8, Geb.Bttr.9, 14-16, 18, bav.

  10. Yes, you won´t see leather-trousers on the western-front usually. Mostly they were worn by mountain troops.
  11. They have leather-knees! Sturmbataillon!
  12. 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?
  13. Maybe soldiers from difefferent units at a funeral
  14. I can´t see leather patches. Can you make a close-up of the helmet-number? Stormbataillonns were not attached to Armeekorps, but to armies. The fact, that we see a number on a helmet cover, could be a proof, it´s not a regular storm-bataillon. In that period of time the 19th Ers.Div. (Armee-Abteilung A) was in that area: Ersatz-Regiments 23, 32, 24, and 40. Ersatz-companies. 12th and 22nd Pi.Btl. 254th Pi.Comp. 88th Res.Pi.Comp. 60th Res.Inf.Rgt. 100th Ldw.Inf.Rgt. (until october) The helmet number could be a 100?
  15. Hello! Does anyone know something about a name on the slate, "Breuning" in connection with the Sturm-Btl.16?
  16. If they are bavarian... I´m not sure about the flag. Does it have blue corners? http://genwiki.genealogy.net/KB_Leib.R
  17. 👍 Great! By the way... I am home... But I wonder, why the card is writte with Stosstrupp and not Surm...
  18. Hello! Do they have leather-patches on the trousers? Can you recognize the helmet-cover of the man walking before the horse?
  19. Hello! Which flag could it be?
  20. Top!!!!!!!!! Great photo!!!!! Thanks for sharing!
  21. Hello! I found another one in Schiffer´s book "The imperial german armies", vol. II. It´s from Marshall Daut´s collection.
  22. I want to show you my collection of austrian and german cap-badges (Kappenabzeichen) with a german background. Tha means, either they are german ones, or austrian ones, that was worn by germans, or could have been worn by gemans (no photo-proof), or just an austrian unit under german command. I won´t show an Edelweiß, because about the Edelweiß we have a lot of threads here in the forum. 1.) Karpathenkorps A german unit (1. and 200. ID) 2.) b.8.Res.Div. A bavarian unit. 3.) 21.Korps In that corps was the group Seekirchner. An austrian unit, commande by bavarian Gen.Lt. Seekirchner
  23. Maybe the tinnie could be bought during the introduction of the nail-man?
