This Prussian private wears the M1907 engineers’ field tunic, with his right sleeve rolled up ready to throw his second pattern M1913 ‘Kugelhandgranate’. He has leather-reinforced elbows, and black M1915 shoulder straps piped red bearing the red battalion number. Note the M1914 reinforced mountain trousers, puttees and mountain boots which were official issue for ‘establishment’ assault units. He wears grenade sacks made locally from the grey waterproof cotton of the M1914 bread bag; and a new pattern M1916 ‘alert container’ holding his gas mask slung ready for use. He has two M1916 stick grenades on his belt, a M98/05 bayonet, a M1897 ‘long spade’ (note loop to shoulder strap), and a Karabiner 98a rifle.
