    It is a Saxon Friedrich August Medal in bronze on the war ribbon. Remember-- photographic chemicals did weird things to colors in this period.

    It's a 2X2 infantry regiment.

    Hi Sef1962!

    To precise, the 242nd were a reserve-infantry-regiment, like all the other regiments in the 200 series

    The R.I.R.242 was formed in oct. 1914 in Zittau (I.Btl. - formed from the Ers.Btl./saxon Inf.Rgt.102), Bautzen (II.Btl. - formedf from Ers.Btl./saxon Inf.Rgt.103) and Kamenz (III.Btl. - formed from Ers.Btl./saxon Inf.Rgt.178).

    It belonged to the 53.Res.Div. and it was composed of 75% volunteers.
