‘Snipers in the furthermost line’. The men themselves are soldiers of the Bavarian 23. Reserve-Infanterie-Regiment which at this time saw service in Siebenburgen, deep in the Carpathian borderlands.

The one on the right seems to wear his helmet over his field cap, resulting in a rather untidy fit.

The 421 RK (42mm, 1st model Revolver Kanone) . The unusual calibre of 42mm was selected, firing a 1.09 kg shell at 1,070 m/s to develop a muzzle energy of 624,000 joules, an increase of 80% over the 40 x 311R Bofors L/56.
