Wouldn't this insignia indicate Freikorps rather than Reichswehr? The one kid looks to be about fifteen!

Possibly but I connect the wreath on the caps with Reichswehr not Frei Korps - however not an expert on FK. Main point however is post war use of Friedensrock and FR worn by EM which is quite rare to see.

Interesting photo, by 1921 its very common to see altered tunics among the Freikorps, and in cases like this we can ID origins and timeline.
