1914-15 with 4th Bavarian division located on .... Lorraine, Somme, Flanders, Artois Loose.

1916 sent to rest with the 33 Bav reserve division at Verdun.........nice place to be

1917 with the 14 Bav Div. back on the Somme Artois

eastern front Riga.... Galicia... then back west.......

1918 with the16 Bav. Div.
Picardy...Ypres... Somme

By 1918 they were rated second class, but that was due to such heavy loss throught the war..

Hi John, Beautiful gun and, as you say, one with a great history. Like all early guns that went to Bavarian units, it hasn't been retrofitted with a hold-open or 50m. sight blade. That early magazine is a real prize, too. Regards, Norm

Outstanding unit marked Luger. I love them, especially M.G. stamped like yours. Matching original mag, that is just impressive.

Very nice gun! I have a 1911 DWM that served with the same regiment, also with the original magazine.
