Hi,

translation of two-liner:

Rear echelon motherer with white tassel in crotch 1913.

 "Kraddel" is from the dialect of the Saarland. So he´s probably from there.

Hi Gents

Hi Bayern

It’s funny you should mention this now. I bought this recently because I like dogs...

However I have just noticed it mentions malaria on the reverse...

Hi,

here are two examples with artillery connection. The soldiers are from the FAR 12 (Field Artillery Regiment 12). Note the patch indicating the gunner and the centennial medals, which might have just been handed out.

GreyC, great photo of the artillerymen with the Kaiser Wilhelm Zentenarmedaille!  I agree they must have recently received the medals.

Hi Irish Gunner,

glad you like it.

Here is another one of a etamäßiger Feldwebel of Saxon Regiment 106 with dog. Note the typical "German" cuffs on the tunic and the mourning band.

Hi Bayern,

the rolled up shoulder straps in this "formal" photo setting indicate that they were probably done with their obligatory service. There are quite a few photos around with "fresh" reservists having the straps rolled up. If you find them rolled up during work in the field it indicates that they were probably carrying heavy loads. This way they had a cushion to relieve the pressure on their shoulder.

And with regard to the Saxon. I wrote exactly that in my post:)
