German photo postcards

Article about: My most recent pick up. If anyone can read the back I'd be grateful! I believe the first one on the left is French instead of German.

    RedArmyCollector....ppsh 33 looks to be correct, I too would say KuK troops in first photo, the kepi's look to be to tall for french and the greatcoats are of an Austro-Hungarian cut, I would say that there are also KuK troops (classic KuK tunic on soldat on the left) together with German troops in photo 4. A nice collection of photographs, as for translation, they look to be written in old German (sutterlin script) a bugger to translate, see if any of our German members can help there ! Although, the first postcard rear shown, has the fieldpost mark of the 6th Bavarian Division, so probably the troops shown on the front are from a Bavarian Regiment.
    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
    G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)

    Thanks for the responses Paul and oradour!

    On the top of the 6th Bavarian Division back I believe it is one of their names and unit. Hopefully someone here will attempt to translate it.
