[QUOTE=90th Light;8468525]I am not so sure that he was a baker Mike.

more likely part of the unit assigned to defend and protect the bakers. He looks to be in the 3rd company of Regiment 122. This is a company of infantry soldiers. The motto "Long live the military bakery" is interesting. Does this refer to a role of protection rather than making bread ? It also raises the question, did each company have bakers or each battalion ?

I'm pulling out of this one now, the expert has spoken so there is nothing else to add.
The stein is what it is and that is all there is to it.
Chris I don't know where you get " Long live the military bakery" Hock leib die militarbarkerei translates out at " High life in the military bakery in my book.

Thanks to all those who contributed
