Torgau d(en) 22.11.15

Liebe Linda !
Zur Erinnerung an die Kriegsjahre 1914 u(nd) 1915.
Ich bin wieder gut in Torgau angekommen.
Heute habe ich eine traurige Arbeit; "Ich packe meine Sachen(").
Ich will schliessen, denn ich habe nicht viel Zeit.

Auf Wiedersehn !!!

Dear Linda!
In memory of the war years 1914 and 1915.
I did came back to Torgau safe and sound.
For now I have a sad work to do; "I'm packing my things(").
I'm closing now because I don't have much time.
See you again !!!

This one I find interesting (guess why...). These four have put their blades in a pyramid. A sword, an 1871 bayonet, an S98 quillback and what might most probably be an S98/05 with flasguard, but might also be some ersatz. That last one is hard to see.

The sword owner is the second from the left. He is either a doctor or a Beamte, as indicated by the plain collar tabs on his Bluse. Unfortunately, his shoulder straps can no be seen clearly enough to make a positive identification.

Father and sons?

Here's a studio photo. The one standing carries a 98/05 bayonet in a steel scabbard with troddel, I'd think that would mean it is no earlier than 1915. No date or writing on it, sadly, but a nice pic I think.
