Hi Andreas, 
Thanks for your reply. 

Hi David, 
I'm not sure. But the man's name should give the answer providing it can be deciphered.

Hello!

We had a Feldartillerie-Regiment 277 and a Fußartillerie-Batterie 277.

FA normally stands for Feldartillerie

The first part of the name to me looks like Meyer followed by something in the range of korbach. Just my two cents.

I was hoping to find  out his name by deciphering the unit 😊

Hi,

I second the reading of the name. It is not in the original Ehrenrangliste index. You´ll find it in the seperately published annex, of 1929, which contains additional names and corrections. Here the name is listed on p1296 and gives his name as on p. 598 in the Ehrenrangliste. The only Meyer (without -Burckhardt) on that page is listed as Major a.D. (1926), who began the war as Oberleutnant within the Festungs-Fernsprech-Kompanie Nr. 4 at Straßburg. So if it is really the same guy he switched unit during the war, which was not unusual.
