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! :>)

Odulf great images......and they are all properly dressed!

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.

Here a couple more from my Collection


A nice Shield


On in a trench


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.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
