Hi All,
I was wondering if this officer can be identified based on his uniform and awards? It looks like the number '13' is on his shoulder boards, but what is his regiment and rank?

Thanks & Regards,
Matt.

I see a Leutnant or Oberleutnant.

Hello.

We see an uniform of Jäger-Regiment zu Pferde N°13 from Saarlouis (XVI.Army Corps).

He also wears an Oldenburg Friedrich-August Cross:

His rank is Oberleutnant (1 star)

The ranklist of honour had two officers of that regiment, who served in the air service later in the war.

Leutnant Neubaur in Flieger-Abt.8, wounded August 8, 1914, died August 21, 1914 in Sennheim (too early, so he won´t be it)

Leutnant Schönberg in Flieger-Abt. (A) 254, missed April 14, 1917.

But he could also be a reserve-officer. Those were not listed in the ranklist of honour.

What´s the badge on his right side? Another pilot badge?
