    Hello All:
    Just ran across these. From what I am told these are WWI German Lieutenant Field Artillery Shoulder boards. Could anyone tell me what unit?? I know it looks like a 92nd on them.
    Thanks for looking and any information you may have.

    They are to be read from the shoulder seam to the buttoned end, so its a "76" not a "92" ! the flaming grenade device indicates Field Artillery..... they are for the rank of Leutnant, belonging to the "5. Badisches Feld-Artillerie-Regt. Nr.76 (Freiburg i.Br.) XIV Armee Korps".
    Prost ! Steve.
    "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)

    The rank is Oberleutnant, so first lieutenant.
