    Hi, mates !

    Want to show you this very interesting photograph, (postcard), of a German Soldier, MIA at the "Western-Front", (Somme).

    Note the trench knife in the leg of the boot !

    The trench knife is a Hugo Köller, or, a Union Messer-und Metallwarenfabrik Zella, St. Blasii

    I know, it´s only a studio-portrait, but , is it really that uninteresting ?

    Anyway, it´s a real coincidence, that I got today another studio portrait, showin´ the same soldier ! ! !

    I must have missed this post originally.

    Interesting to see a "boot knife" in a boot.
