Hello!

What kind of uniforms are these guys wearing? 

The men in the background are wearing sailor uniforms, but these don´t "fit in" the picture. 

I´m not the owner of the photo, that´s why I don´t post the entire picture. I found the photo on a Swedish auction site.

Austro-Hungarian machine-gun corps based on the collar badges of the guy on the left.

Thanks guys!

The knowledge here is impressive!

It´s a bit strange that one of them seem to wear a fez... :)

The two sailors in the back row wearing the white jackets are Austro-Hungarian, but the other sailors are German.  From what I can make out the Austro-Hungarians are from the support vessel SMS GÄA, so Cattaro Bay as a location for the photo is a very real possibility.

Hello Gentlemen , The seller of the pic saids : Photo of submarine dotation Germany WW1 1916 , Framed . its clear that although in the photo are German sailors ,are Austro Hungarian sailors too ,the two with fez and the two in white uniform ,apart from Army soldiers. so the photo was taken most probably in Pola or Cattaro ,Pul or Kotor ,
