Not much known about these mountain artillery units.

I have a Militaerpass from a Wachtmeister that served in the Bad.-Gebirgs-Kanonen-Batterie 1 - He fought at the Hartmannsweilerkopf in 1915.

Transferred to GeBa1 from FAR50 - He was trained on the 7,5 cm Gebirgskanone L14 - was a Zugfuehrer and Feldwebelleutnant.

Very nice MP!!!!

The Gebirgskanonen-Batterien were later unnamed into Gebigs-Batterien.

The Geb.Kan.Bttr.1 was set-up 12.10.1914 by Stellv. Gen.Kdo. XIV.AK, mobil since 4.1.1915

6.6.1915 changed into württ. Geb.Btr.Nr.11

Under command of:

6.1.15-6.3.15: 51.Ldw.Brig.

8.3.15-11.4.15: Div. Fuchs

20.7.15-?: 8.b.Res.Div.
