Hello , Certainly Wurttemberg , but Infantry? the  cuff pattern says that ,but althoug the photo is in black and white neither the collar or the cap band also the cuffs appears to be red . appears as if all is blue in colour and piped in light blue .including the SBs . This means Militarkrankenwarter . and what a such name means ? Literally  military Sicken guard. they carry the number of the army corps on the SBs and they were not medical personnel

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • 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

    • 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.
