Mmmm, trench mag…
Decorated Bavarian infantrymen pose with two French prisoners of war. The fellow in the centre wears the insignia of the Chasseur à pied (French light infantry) on his helmet, the other one isn’t so clear (possibly an artilleryman)
Of note is the 20-round Grabenmagazin fitted to the Gew 98 on the right. These magazines were generally issued to troops in defensive positions as they were cumbersome and generally unpopular with the men in the field. It is unusual to see one out of a trench position.
