Hello Chris

Armee Korps was my first thought also...  bayer. I AK ... 1. Landsturm unit something or another.  But I haven't seen before this dual numbered helmet cover either.

Hello!

I.1 = Bayerisches Garnisons-Bataillon Nr.1 (bavarian garrison-bataillon N° 1) of the first bavarian army corps.

Formed June 4, 1915 in Munich. Placed in Rosenheim, used as border and railway protection.

The soldiers normally were "garnisonsverwendungsfähig" (usable in garrison) and not "kriegsverwendungsfähig" (usable at war), that means, they were not able to fight at the front, but only serving in the garrison. They also served in POW camps.

Note, this man has a Mosin-Nagant M1891 rifle!

Shoulder straps of the Bavarian Garnisons Bataillonen looked like this...(in this case, K.B.III.A.K., 5.Komp.).

    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
    • I don't really drink that much these days, but there is something about a hot cup of Char that can't be beaten when you are cold wet and miserable. Has to be with milk and although I prefer it sweet with a teaspoon of sugar, these day I usually go without. When the mood takes me I will also  drink Earl Grey (with milk of course). But if I am honest my favourite brew is coffee (espresso) can't stand instant coffee, though although I do like Camp coffee which is another British thing from days gon
