It just says "best wishes from my great drill/exercise [Übung]". The name is Bruno Stockhardt, he is a Landwehrmann in the Fuß-Artillerie-Regiment 3, Munitionskolonne (ammunition column) stationed in Mainz.

The official name of the regiment was Fußartillerie-Regiment General-Feldzeugmeister (Brandenburgisches) Nr. 3. The regiment was split up in August 1914. The 1st battalion was assigned to 6. Infanterie-Division, the 2nd battalion to 19. Reserve-Division, and the 3rd battalion to 2. Garde-Infanterie-Divison. I guess that Bruno was in the 1st battalion because only 6. Infanterie-Division mentions a Munitionskolonne among their units. I couldn't find any Bruno Stockhardt or someone with a similar name (presumably from Lubau, this is where he sent the postcard) in the Verlustlisten.

 Anything more on these gentlemen ?

I am thinking about Pioneer Battalion No29 From Poznan (Pozen)

But to be fair I would not know how to recognise a Pioneer.

Hello Martin!

These guys have brandenburg cuffs (three buttons vertical). So it´s infantry. Because of the old ammo pouches and the ages of the men, I assume Reserve or Landwehr 29

Hello, 

Attached is a photo of a soldier who is most likely my wife's grandfather, Wilhelm Jochmann born Oct. 10, 1901 in Hesse (?). Would anyone know more about the uniform?  I do not have the original. Thanks for any suggestions!

Hello JR!

Unfortunately the photo is too small to recognize details. But anyway, how old could he be on that photo? Born 1901, so he was 17 at the end of the war.

I´m sorry, but on the photo he looks like around 30...

He has brandenburg cuffs, so he will be infantry; if the capband is black, foot artillery.

Maybe could find out more infos about him. I couldn't find a Wilhelm Jochmann from Hesse in the casualty list.

I was sent the photo & may have made an assumption it was him. According to some family history he was in WWII and so if in WWI survived.

That's hard to research. Try to collect every single piece of infos. Maybe we could find the right one

Unfortunately that doesn´t  help in military research.

I received an interesting Christmas gift from my better half. A "grab-bag" of about 300 what appear to be 1900-1920 photographs. These originated from a dealer in Germany so it is unlikely that there is anything really special in them (by which I mean I suspect they have been sorted through) but a quick glance does suggest that there are some interesting group shots.

While I am reasonably comfortable with British photos - these are exclusively German - and an area about which I know very little. My knowledge of German military organization is relatively limited also so I was hoping to pick the brains of experts here. Quite a number of the photo-cards have writing on and a quick glance through suggests both the handwriting and the language is going to challenge my 30 year old O-Level German!

 

 

BLIMEY -- 6 years on......

In addition to a collection of 200+ photos relating to IR 21 in Bulgaria and Galicia etc which I have posted about in other threads, I was just given another mixed batch of about 70 German photos with a number of quite interesting ones in it: so I'll scan a few in to start with. I just got them and had a quick sort through and found 8 showing various different machine guns:

Shoulder strap of chap lying by dog appears to be 22, wheeled carriage looks interesting,

 

MG2.jpg.2d7bfbf7dcdc3d141d77aee252b92ae4.jpg

No real detail discernable on uniforms - man at front appears to be aiming a flare pistol

MG3.jpg.83a6ed794a5558cc9c35dcd59fc0048e.jpg

Shoulder strap appears to be 55
