Hello Gentlemen!

Does anyone have an idea to ID this men from the X.AK?

Probably it shows the General staff from 1905

The Photo is dated: 15.6.-29.6.1905

Thanx a lot in advance

One in the front row right looks to be a husar. Look like a deaths head...

Seems like a lot of guys for a peacetime corps staff when one bears in mind the the officer complement was usually seven officers including the corps commander. Perhaps the division and brigade staff officers were on hand. The Chief of Staff was Oberstleutnant Konstantin Schmidt v. Knobelsdorf. Incidentally this photograph was taken at Hermanns Denkmal just to the south of Detmold and in the VII Army Corps District.

Regards

Glenn

No, he wears a Skullhead, because of the 92.th inf.rgt., that belong to the X.AK

Yes, that?s right, but I bought the photo, from an album, which said, the photo was taken by the X.AK. It also said, there was a "Generalstabsreise". Unfortunately I only bought the photo, the text belomgs to the album, that haven?t been in the offer

Okay, I was going to say either IR92 or HR17 but the skull looked top short from what I could see.

Here's my IR92 officer's cap.

Actually, I do think he's a Husar of HR17. Look at the color of his tabs and the style boots he wears.

But he's wearing hussar boots, not regular infantry officer's boots.

Oops, never mind, I see several other people already said that!
