German Machine Gun Units: Luger ID


Recommended Posts


I have a deactivated 1915 dated German Luger. The regimental markings read thus: 1.E.M.G.22. I believe this stands for 1st batt or regiment, substitute Machine gun company. pistol number 22. Can any member enlighten me about such a unit? What's the "substitute" all about? Was it Prussian, Saxon etc? Any ideas where such a unit served, whi would carry a pistol or any info about MG units generally?...

Thanks in anticipation :)
