A day at the beach

NCOs and Mannschaften from an unidentified regiment relax on the sand in a no doubt welcome respite from the trenches.


A couple of interesting items of note are:


Owner / unit identification details can be seen uniformly stenciled on the inside collars of the men's fatigues.


Two kinds of bayonets are visible in the foreground, the central one being a 98/05 "butcher" bayonet and the two smaller types being M1914 sawbacks (issued to NCOs).


The mandolin is an unfamiliar type. It has however been adorned with bayonet troddels.
