Freikorps with Cammo Machine Guns

Recommended Posts

I don't dispute that this is a Freikorps Grenzschutz MG unit which happens to have the name Berthold. But, it isn't the same as Detachment Berthold (more correctly Eiserne Schar Berthold) which wasn't formed until April 1919 by ace Rudolph Berthold.

At the time of this photo, Berthold was at home convalescing from a plane crash in August 1918.

good to know!! i was was puzzled at the Geographic discrepency when I found the FK Berthold name as these guys were very probably on the Southern Border.
