actual image size: 32cm x 21cm


A photographic postcard of three German soldiers, taken by an unknown photographer in about 1914. These young soldiers' distinctive 'pickelhaube' pointed helmets are protected by a canvas covering, stencilled with the number of their battalion. All three soldiers are also wearing flowers on their breasts, perhaps a reminder for them of happier days as they march off with their packs to war.
