The left arm badge above the red cross armband, would that be a medical oval with winding snake? Can someone translate please the writing?

(Anton in uniform 1914/15, Greetings, For duty time in the World War is what I see).

Thanks

I think that is a sword for Train troops. He also wears the mounted troops belt buckle. I also think that thing above the neutrality armband is just a flaw. The Sanitäter patch would have been worn on the right upper arm.

I thought the buckle was for mounted troops, would that not coincide with the sabre? But being sanitates, he could be part of a Trains Sanitates unit too. I hope to get more info once the photo arrives.
