Note the braid upon the man´s collar (2nd from right). That´s the so-called "Bayernborte = bavarian braid).

I also can read 1.M.G.K. on the shield and a shoulder strap seems to be a 7. So we have:

1st MG-comp. of the bavarian

a) Inf,Rgt.7

b) Res.Rgt.7

c) Ldw.Rgt.7

Moderator is looking at how to remove all these Photobucket 'entries'.  Once cleaned I will get back to re-energising MG08 & MG08/15 complimenting 'grips of death'.

Nice 'spiked' helmet gun team. Sorry for absence but now time to re-inject some life into this thread to compliment 'Grips of Death'.

Happy New Year.

Hi, are these men Jager zu Pherde or Heavy Cavalry? The spiked helmets look infantry but the tunics look like JzP.

very interesting photo

Hello ; The prussian regiments of JzP number 8 to 13 dont weared Kurassier helms except the officers . they used Dragoner helms and Dragoner boots. So the machine gunners portrayed must be JzP.

Are these Bavarian soldiers?

Its possible ,judging by the officer who appears on the right of the photo ,on his collar is clearly visible the bavarian borte .apart his portepee or swordknot is the oval shaped bavarian model .

The six men with a MG wears a lower cockade on their cap bands which appears to be bavarian of one of the models in use ,that is white with a light blue center . but they not wear the bavarian collar borte .

    • 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.
