Men at arms

FJB 18

Each of the hunter battalions had a large numbered horn badge that could be pinned to the hat and a smaller numbered horn badge that could be applied to a field cap or an officer’s headgear. I have already presented some of these. There was also an entry where the numbered horn decorated a field correspondence sheet.

Now we can see the insignia of the 18th Battalion in a wearing photo. This battalion has no other Kappenabzeichen. It was a Galician troop, the cadre was in Lemberg, the garrison was in Trient. Its staff consisted of Poles and Ruthenians. He was assigned to the Galician 11th Corps.
