Bavarian Schiessauszeichnung/marksman 10th grade prior 1894

Recommended Posts

Hi,

for my 500th post I thought I treat you to this Bavarian soldier with marksman stripes prior to the introduction of the cord in 1894. Not too often found, but not superspecial, so appropriate for the occassion. Have enjoyed being part of this forum so far!

Yes, single cockade becausee the photo was made well prior to 1897, when the national cockade was introduced.

Thanks,

Hello!

Marksman stripes 10th class! Great photo!

Two large and two small stripes = 10th class

Atelier in Munich. Without Guard-Litzen. So probably 1st or 2nd Inf.Rgt.
