Not much known about these mountain artillery units.

I have a Militaerpass from a Wachtmeister that served in the Bad.-Gebirgs-Kanonen-Batterie 1 - He fought at the Hartmannsweilerkopf in 1915.

Transferred to GeBa1 from FAR50 - He was trained on the 7,5 cm Gebirgskanone L14 - was a Zugfuehrer and Feldwebelleutnant.

Picture of a gun from the Baden GeBa1 in action at the Hartmannsweilerkopf - 1915

A nice Pass and photo, Hardy! An article on Gebirgs-Artillerie is on my editorial list of things to do...

Very nice MP!!!!

The Gebirgskanonen-Batterien were later unnamed into Gebigs-Batterien.

The Geb.Kan.Bttr.1 was set-up 12.10.1914 by Stellv. Gen.Kdo. XIV.AK, mobil since 4.1.1915

6.6.1915 changed into württ. Geb.Btr.Nr.11

Under command of:

6.1.15-6.3.15: 51.Ldw.Brig.

8.3.15-11.4.15: Div. Fuchs

20.7.15-?: 8.b.Res.Div.

Here's an example of an enlisted M15 Gebirgs-Artillerie strap. No unit number assigned. Possibly unissued. Often, unit numbers were added later upon assignment from the Ersatz unit.

Take a guess! ;)

Right! They're darn scarce. I have another pair that is numbered (#20).

Hardy,

That GA strap is nothing compared to the really rare one I have coming.... :jumping: Been looking for an example for decades.

Good for you, my friend!

Sure would like to see it

I have seen a GA Offizierstellverteter strap on ebay, a while ago.

A friend of mine has an officer's board with the "GA". I've never managed to get one of those.
