Note the braid upon the man´s collar (2nd from right). That´s the so-called "Bayernborte = bavarian braid).

I also can read 1.M.G.K. on the shield and a shoulder strap seems to be a 7. So we have:

1st MG-comp. of the bavarian

a) Inf,Rgt.7

b) Res.Rgt.7

c) Ldw.Rgt.7

I agree with Andy. It is nothing official. It's not a farrier's patch (horse shoe) or a Richtkanonier patch (bursting bomb).

Moderator is looking at how to remove all these Photobucket 'entries'.  Once cleaned I will get back to re-energising MG08 & MG08/15 complimenting 'grips of death'.

Nice 'spiked' helmet gun team. Sorry for absence but now time to re-inject some life into this thread to compliment 'Grips of Death'.

Happy New Year.

Hi, are these men Jager zu Pherde or Heavy Cavalry? The spiked helmets look infantry but the tunics look like JzP.

very interesting photo

Sorry CCJ, I am unaware of the unit type, but I know you will enjoy this one.

The tunics in post #32 look like those of one of the Maschinengewehr Abteilung.

Hey Chip, doesn’t it appear the cuffs and collars are darker green with the trim seen on JzP troop uniforms?

Hello ; The prussian regiments of JzP number 8 to 13 dont weared Kurassier helms except the officers . they used Dragoner helms and Dragoner boots. So the machine gunners portrayed must be JzP.
