Hello!

A nice tunic! Thanks for showing!

Until july 1915 the Train-formatzions had the number of the Train-Bataillon upon the shoulder straps (Garde and 1-21 and 3 bavarians). Since July 21, 1915 they had to wear the numbers of the division. Since April 21, 1917 the unites recieved their own numbers.

So here we have a Train column of the 89th Inf.Div. (until summer 1915), or if the tunic is from after april 1917 a Train column N°89.

A Train-column with that number could be a supply column, supply park, depot supply column, remount depot, field bakery column, field butchery column or equal unizs of the lines of communication
