Great image but a bit of a surprise how scruffy the section leader is! Cap pushed back, hands in pocket, fag in hand, tunic undone - cricket he could almost be an American! :>)

Yep, they are non in underwear, but these are all arranged pictures; not in combat.

It is nice that shoulderboards are shown, indicating that all Infantry Regiments had MG-Units.

I am more interested in the orgnisational structures, and not in the mechanical differences of the MG in practice.

Super ersatz tripod view.  Do you know dates of when these came into service Andy?

Given that the Bluse is being worn, the photo would have to be of 1916 vintage or later.

Chip excellent input, thank you. Observations made by knowledgable members like you and Prussian help considerably.. Could you post some images of the various types of tunics?

My favorite one - i love the Grabendolch

The man on the Picture is Schütze J. Römermann. He were awartet the EK2 and the black wound badge. He also has the MG Badge.

I nearly has everything from him - just the "Kriegsehrenkreuz der Kriegsfreiwilligen 1914-1918" is missing.
