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.

Picture of a gun from the Baden GeBa1 in action at the Hartmannsweilerkopf - 1915

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.

    • 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.
