    I need help with this Hensoldt 4x

    Well, the market in the US is totally different to the market over here. I wouldn't spend anything near $250 for a commercial Zielvier in average condition.

    Very true. I wouldn't spend anything north of $100 for that scope.

    According to period documents, the 2nd company of III.S.B. had some bicyclists, but the III.S.B. never had a bicycle company in Tsingtau. One only has to look through the PoW files at: https://grandeguerre.icrc.org/en/List/584256/921/166/ There, you can find all company numbers, sappers...

    Interestingly both soldiers do not wear the regular field grey Navy tunics. The NCO wears a regular Army M36 tunic and the tunic of the Corporal seems to be a Reichswehr Moleskin tunic.

    Are these Polish bayonets? "links mein Zugführer, rechts ein Gefreiter" = "on the left my platoon leader, on the right a corporal"

    Gebrüder Haedel?

    I think I know the articles you are referring to. The caption reads Gebrüder Haeckel. Otto and Georg Haeckel were well known photographers from Berlin. In WWI they worked as war photographers. https://www.dhm.de/archiv/magazine/fotografen/haeckel.html

    I finally got the correct ammo pouch for my rifle. It's a Pattern 1911 pouch made in 1916 by F.W. Rappold in Blaufelden with "REV" ink stamp inside the lid. Rappold also made holsters for the Luger pistols.
