“Machinegunners from 2. Nassauisches Infanterie-Regiment Nr.88 in a seemingly exposed position circa 1916. Some of the fellows are wearing shoes instead of marching boots, and the lack of equipment and accoutrements, suggests this is in fact a training environment.

The “K” on the shoulder strap stands for (King) Konstantin of Greece, Chief of the regiment since 1913.”
