What / who / when is this?

Clues =

The lower cockade is usually Saxon or Bavarian, in that order of likelihood.

The straps are solid black with dark piping = Pioneers or some engineering related unit such as mortars, sappers, and so on.

M1915 Feldbluse so 1916+

The ribbon bar places an award AHEAD of the EK2, reinforcing Saxon or Bavarian.

And we all know those crazy Saxons were the main fashion weirdos with the pointless and non regulation EK devices!!!

If you can enlarge ONLY the ribbon bar, I'n pretty sure what that first ribbon is will be the Saxon Friedrich August Medal, with the usual old photographic processes "issue" which changes how colors look when printed:


If his state belt buckle had not been cropped, that would have been the final confirmation of which army he belonged to.
