Hi Gents

This is a mounted photo of the Kaisers yacht Hohenzollern...

Gents, I read the date as either 1870 or 1876? However... Googled it just now and as you can see below it says in service 1878 - 1918.

So seems to be an early picture...

Hello tony , the yacht in the photo is the Seeadler former Hohenzollern . she served as Kaiseryacht between 1880 and 1892 . It was replaced by a much modern  unit which took the name . the ship was renamed Seeadler.

Hi Bayern.

Not quite correct, I am afraid.

The Hohenzollern (I) served as Kaiseryacht under the names of Hohenzollern and after the new Hohenzollern was launched in June 1891 as the renamed KAISERADLER. As there already was a ship by the name KAISERADLER (a cruiser) that was renamed SEEADLER. Only after the new Hohenzollern was put into service in April 1893 the Kaiseradler was decommisioned in October of 1893. However, it saw service one more time during the opening of the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Kanal on 21st June 1895 when it was the temporary home of the Kings of Saxony and Wurttemberg and the prince-regent of Bavaria Luitpold.

It was permanently decommissioned in August of that year.

Hi gents, Bayern, GreyC

thanks for the answers....

So I’m now guessing that the note in the centre was added later. An expansion of the original smaller note at the bottom. That would explain the date being off?

The bottom reads...

Kaiseradler chemialize* Hohenzollern

what is the middle word please?

The middle one says on the front something like (rhymed in German):

Oh how well does he feel, who just finished his last watch/guard duty.

On the reverse the brother writes to his sister, that he rather enjoys having just ended his military duty. He is now in some business-premises he used to work in in Dresden and looks forward to coming to Manheim.

Their are men of a Saxon Regiment . Probably of the 108 th Schutzen Regiment . one man wears tschako , the uniform colour was dark green with black collar and cuffs all piped in red . They could be also of the second saxon jaeger bataillon both units were stationed in Dresden

hi GreyC and Bayern,

Thanks again again and again both.

you both are very kind with your time and I never take it for granted....

I had wondered what headwear the man on the left was wearing - I didn’t think of a tschako cover.

Given the date I guess he wouldn’t have known war was round the corner and that he would have been back in uniform before long....

Hi!

The card with the "Kapelle d. bad. Leib-Grenardier-Regiments Karlsruhe" is interesting on front AND back.

It is addressed to a Mr. Hug who seems to own a publishing house for sheet music in Konstanz. The sender informs him, that the band will play a concert with accompanying  dinner for  the audience in this city. The sender asks Mr Hug if he could possibly do the job of arranging the music for that occasion.

Congrats!

The publishing house seems to still exist today:
