Unknown German Soldier - photo

Recommended Posts

I somehow became the owner of this lovely photograph, I do not collect such items but thought the members of this thread may like to see it. I assume it is an in memoriam card of some description but is not the usual type as it is a card cabinet photo.

I hope it is of interest

Hi Peter,

Erinnerung an den Weltkrieg.....
World-War memory is about the translation IMO.

At least he survived the war.....

Thanks for showing, nice one !

Hello!

Lindau i.B. means Lindau in Bayern (Bavaria)

In Lindau was the staff, the I. and the III.Bataillon of bavarian 20th Infantry Regiment.

He wears the Bluse M15 with white piped shoulder straps = infantry

His tunic doesn't appear to be a M1915 Feldbluse, it has 1915 straps though.

You are absolutely right. My fault. I just saw the shoulder stripes. So he wears a 07/10 tunic with M15 shoulder boards.

Thanks for the correction! I wrote it sunday, 7am, with a little headache...:rolleyes:
