    Default Die Reichswehr Im Bild: Infantry Regiment 16

    Hi

    This thread is a unique opportunity to show the day to day life in the Reichswehr from the point of view of the new recruit.

    It gives us an insight into the attention to detail that makes an effective soldier and shows to good effect the uniforms and headgear of the time.

    The photo album which I am publishing (in it's entireity) is a record from the training battalion of IR16 circa 1929.

    It is an absolute gem for the military historian......a snap shot of the moment ........ it is a "story board" in its own right.

    The album owner very kindly wrote is name in the front, "Hienrich Hüber IR7" so maybe he was transferred later on ?

    He also put his picture in the front.............dressed in what looks like a Spanish Uniform, but that is another research project!

    This cap was owned by a member of IR16 and he was in the 16th Kompanie.

    It is from a slightly earlier period than the photo album but nevertheless is a nice compliment to the photos above.
