Hi Bayern 

you know I readily jump to conclusions!

I thought maybe the guy with his back to camera? And the one behind the ‘blurry’ guy?

The headwear was the reason...

Big group of Jäger, marksman award and plenty of edelweiss present but no medals yet except this one with arms crossed...

im guessing perhaps the instructor with his class.

Dear Tony,

the group photo, depicts Landesschützen, not Jaeger. Their cap is ornated with a Spielhahnstoß and the collars with Edelweiß.

Is there any note, on the reverse?

Best wishes,

Enzo (E.L.)

Hello tony, Interesting . Is  any date on the reverse ?  They look as Home depot recruits later in the war . field grey caps , pre war waffenrock with the colour of the collar concealed , field grey breeches and putees and ersatz belts . The second photo shows what appears to been recruits also but tthese with hungarian pike grey trousers .

and with blue blusen and not waffenrock

Hi Bayern,

Sadly impossible to make out the date stamp and unusually its not handwritten either.

However, with an eyepiece, I can make out ‘ Fji ‘ on the cockade...

and also just noticed an edelweiss, only one, on the cap of the man in the centre of the back row.

Hi again Bayern, 

Just a thought- is there anything relevant about the finish of the peak of their caps? Does it help date it?

the last pic above on this post has a black peak as do all 3 in the pic on previous post #63 

the first picture on #63 (below) with 4 in it, just 1 ‘dark’  and rest pale....

nHello tony , Hello tony , the current peak of Austro hungarian caps was black ,made usually of leather. with the war shortages of raw materials the peaks were made of cloth in the same colour of the cap .sometimes ,of black coloured waxed cloth.

Cavalryman picture - i now see the republic cap badge

The second pic had looked a little odd to me. An Nco with a sword.  

Was it usual for the artillery Korporal to have a sabre please?

Lastly, I wonder what you make of this next one?

Maybe not military?Is it police perhaps? 

Dated 1928 and taken in a Vienna studio.
