    Mo...WW1 photograph...why ?.....still has both cockades on mutze, after the war the Prussian cockade was usually discarded, still has shoulder straps attached to his M15 bluse...in the Freidensheer (Peacetime army, 19.01.1919-05.05.1919), the forerunner of the Reichswehr these would of been removed...his only rank devices are his "Gefreiter knopf" buttons on his collar, showing he is a senior EM, these "buttons" although used in the Freidensheer, they were not used in the Reichswehr or the TR Heer. The "litzen" on his collar was worn in the Imperial Army by some honoured Regiments, unlike the Reichswehr and TR Heer when it was worn by all. So I would say after 1915 to 1918.
    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."
