Nice photos of the original Stogieman. It is odd that in the first photo with the overcoat that he is wearing a blue feldmutze and that the boards are plain with no number or cypher. Must be his recruit photo. Christmas 1916 or 1917 was spent in the hospital. That must have been loads of fun, especially with those beds. Ouch! Looks like he made it to Sergeant with the Iron Cross 2nd class and perhaps a Hesse-Darmstadt bravery medal in what looks like the 123rd Regiment? Do you know if he survived?
