    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 rank is Oberleutnant, so first lieutenant.
