Hi Gents.

these are mine. I'll photograph them as a group first. I do love 'em and I hope you do too. I will scan them singly if you are interested and let me know....

Farkas : My pleasure , the new photo posted is interesting ,Austria troops in the western front says over the pic . Nancy Toul Verdun France .Well , in the year 1914 the only Austrian soldiers serving in France were artillerymen . with the heavy Skoda mortars .used against the belgian fortresses . The uniforms of the men appears to be pike grey . one of the men holds a carbine . a weapon for artillerymen

Morning Bayern

heres the reverse of this one...

sent from Greifenberg, I don't think this is Feldposte - based on it having paid postage - but maybe there is something you can see in the text?

IMG_2465.thumb.JPG.b2dcaede73b03565a621dffed58ce503.JPG

And while I'm here, here is another one I've just received.A variety of uniforms with what looks (to me!) like signals/comms equipment....

written 11-1-15

Sent with postage paid from Innsbruck(?) I think....
