Bavarian WWI dogtag

Post by Markgraf » Tue Jan 20, 2015 7:26 am

Excuse me for the bad pictures - the item is not mine.

I guess the F.D.A.R means Feldartillerie Regiment - but as far as I know in the WWI was only 12 Bavarian FAR.

What does it mean the L.F.M.K abbrevation?

Thanks in advance!

"Leichte Feldartillerie Munitions Kolonne" The field and foot artillery units increased exponentially in number during the war. Each had one or more assigned supply columns. You are probably thinking of the number of prewar regiments.
