Have an old (and poor quality) family photo, taken in 1915, showing a group of German officers and soldiers behind a sign which translates as "1915 Erinnerung A memento of our military service 6 Korps XI/28" Is anyone able to give me a clue as to the identity of this unit?

A photograph will help - when you can put one up! Generally, Roman numerals were used to designate an Armee Korps, 'Arabic' for other units, etc.

I would say 6. Korporalschaft of 11th Company of (some) Regiment 28. Without scans, it's impossible to say more.

Oh well done! That sounds like it fits the bill!

An alternative might be the 6th Komp (Company) of the 28th Landsturm Battalion of Army Corps District XI. I don't think the Germans used Roman numerals for companies though they did for battalions.
