  1. Hello!

    I cheked your photo again. I was wrong with Marinekorps.

    It´s a simple fieldgrey naval uniform since April 15, 1921. (Marine-Verordnungsblatt Nr.10)

    "Collar with Double-braidings like the early See-Bataillon, without collar-tabs."

    All NCO and EM had those crossed anchors on ther shoulder-straps.

    The crossed anchors for helmsmen were worn as an oval patch upon the upper arm


  2. 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?

  3. Hello!

    That´s strange. Cuirassiers had a line-eagle. This is a dragoon-eagle. Jäger zu Pferde (mounted Jäger) has this eagle. But Jäger z.Pf. 1-7 had white eagles. Jäger z.Pf. 8-13 had yellow eagles, but enlisted men had a black leather-helmet and officers a black helmet.. No tombak helmets! The cloverleave cocades were worn by Jg.z.Pf 1-7. It looks like a mix between regiments 1-7 and 8-13...

    Maybe there was a war-time pattern with that symbols and made from tombak...

  4. Kraus writes, that first the Alpenkorps was equipped with the "Gebirgshose". (17.8.11915). The Sturmbataillone recieved their leather-patched-trousers with ordre from 2.1.1917 (Kraus, vol. I, page 560).

    You wrote, a couple of photos were from 1918. In may 1918, the Gen.Kdo.59 was in the area of Cirey.

    In Sept./Nov. 1918 the Armee-Abteilung A was:

    VII.AK, XV.RK, Gen.Kdo.59, austrian IX.AK

    Units since 15.9.1918

    13.ID (until 15.9.1918), 75.RD (7.10.-5.11.1918), 61.Ldw.Brig., 21.LD, 96.ID, 92.Res.Jg.Brig., 25.ID (18.-25.9.1918), 301.ID, 39.RD, hungarian 37.Honved-Div.

    What about a close-up of the helmet cover in #204, please?
