An excellent study of a Landsturm infantryman in full marching order. This fellow is from Landsturm Infanterie Ersatz Bataillon 'Saarbrücken' (XXI 4).

 

He is wearing a fine example of the M1892 Landsturm Überzug (helmet cover) with sewn-on Landwehr Cross above his battalion number. His tunic and trousers are the M1907/10 pattern and his ammunition pouches are the M1909 type. He is armed with a Gew 88/S and S71 bayonet.
