Hello everyone,

 

anyone can help me ? On this picture, German soldiers in Ath (Belgien) in 1914-1915, but what unit ? Cavalry unit ?

Thanks a lot for your help.

Since they were stationed in Ath, chances are real they were some Landwehr or Landsturm Eskadron of a Husaren-Regiment. Is there nothing on the back?

The piping on the shoulder boards suggests that they are group of „Einjährig Freiwilligen“ in a Husaren Regiment.

No, it's just the typical hussar shoulder board (they were coloured according to the regiment).

Hi,

in August of 1914 the 3rd Escadron of HR 15 marched/rode through Ath. The photo was taken after 10th or 16th of Dec., but maybe one of the guys is from that unit. They seem to be from different Husar Regiments, considering the different collar colors.

Thanks a lot for your answers ! I will put another picture with Hussaren in Ath, taken later (1915 or 1916), perhaps it is same unit
