Hello!

I´ve checked too.

The only saxon 22 were those:

Pi.Btl.22
Scheinwerfer Zug/Pi.Btl.22 (XIX.AK)

1.Ers.Kp./Pi.Btl.22 (19.Ers.Div.)

L.S.K.22 (47.Ldw.Brig) - I can´t say what the abbreviation means -I´ll check it later...

schwere Minenwerfer-Abtl.22

Armierungs-Btl.22

Thanks..............The Luger's unit marking was mis-identified, there is a 22.R and was part of the 12.J.D. but as you, I found nothing connecting it with the Royal Saxon Rifles.

I´ve checked the L.S.K.22

Landwehr-Saniäts-Kompanie 22. It became later the saxon San.Kp.562. Surely no Rifle-Unit...

The marking on the Luger is 22.R. and the owner had described that unit as being the Royal Saxon Rifle Corps. Where he came to that being, I haven't a clue. Nowhere have I found the unit was a Rifle Regiment. I did find a 22 Inf Regt and it was part of the 12th J.D. I just thought I'd ask in case I was missing something. 'R' size of 'R' and also if it is in gothic or script means different at different times. This 'R' is a bit bigger than other "R's. I believe the seller became confused because the letter 'R' stood for rifle and instead of Inf because it being an 'R' instead of a 'J'. Both were used.

Now I'm confused........................... :banger::D I passed on it anyway and acquired a 1914 Erfurt marked to the Bavarian Signal Abteilung that would have been assigned to the Bavarian Cavalry Division at the outbreak of the war.

I am still in the dark as to what the "royal Saxon Rifle Corps" is supposed to be ? What is the German term?

Hi Chris,

Due to the very dark green uniforms of the Saxon Jäger units, they had sometimes been called "Die schwarze Brigade" (The black Brigade) - but there was no "Königlich Sächsisches Jäger-Korps" after 1813.
