k.b. 10.JR. The off center numbers are great to see--some to the left, some to the right, some about center, or starting to float toward the ceiling.

Hello. Fritz die spinne. There is no date on the pic of the Bavarians ? I asks because the man seated in the center ,a Gefreiter wears what looks as a Kunftigefriedensuniform very smart with long trousers with sous pied , and the two men seated in the extremes wears what looks as cord trousers

Hello!

I assume it´s the old coloured tunic. In Bavaria the numbers had to be removed November 14, 1916.

The bavarian "Friedensrock" was introduced Ovtober 20, 1916 and ALL brandenburg cuffs were replaced by swedish cuffs. Addotionally the bavarian Friedensrock had the Aichinger braid.

Here you see a bavarian Friedensrock from bIR16 (or bRIR16):
