Hi,

It's not the Kaiser. It is possible for you to make a focus of the shoulderboard. With this we can see if it is the Oberst of the unit or a General.

Nice photo :jumping:

Ahhh - I was given it's the kaiser, but really, I'm missing his orders like the grand cross of the iron cross... so who was the commanding officer of the IR11 (I think the 11 stands for IR11)?

Picture will follow ASAP

Thanks for Info!

You may get a more accurate identification from the ciphers on the soldier's shoulder straps. Could be Grenadier Rgt 11 or RIR 11 or....

I'd say he's an Oberst with every inch of his boards covered by the cipher and pips.

Can't quite make out the storefront signs as to language.

Another clue is that he's going for a full gloved handshake-- the All Highest and v Hindenburg used to sort of barely touch their gloved fingertips to the calloused paws of The Lower Orders.
