    Schloss Tillisburg is in Austria - best I can work out it is to the South East of the Austrian City of Enns

    In a book from 1851 it is spelt Tillisburg but now appears as Schloss Tillysburg

    Thanks guys. I wonder what is going on in the foto. The guy I bought it from said it was "General Staff" but since there are not many Generals present (if any) I guess he was BSing me...

    They were probably conducting war games as there wouldn`t have been any fighting in Austria at that tjme.

    The General Staff was a professional body of officers with a high degree of training and military expertise to formulate, disseminate and oversee operations at the Divisional level (or above). Essentially they were the Generals staff who were the cream of the officer corps.
