Another group photo from the Pomerania district of II Army Corps. This time it is a 3 Company of Grenadier-Regiment König Friedrich Wilhelm IV. (1. Pommersches) Nr. 2 photo, taken at the end of military service in 1913. On the photo there are two boards visible, one marked 1913, when the photo was taken and the other one presenting cypher of the Grenadier Regiment Nr. 2. The cypher shows initials R, F, W, IV, meaning the initials of the regiment patron Rex Frederick Wilhelm IV. This characteristic cypher is visible also on the regiment shoulder strap. Below the photo, there is a list of the soldiers names and theirs distinctions. This photo was probably taken on the backyard of the Grenadiers barracks in Stettin.



An interesting fact is that together with the Grenadier group photo, a photo of one of the reservists was also found. The photo has typical reservist motifs: Imperial German and Prussian flags, guardhouse and the Grenadier shoulder strap.



After a closer look at both photos, we notice they present the same Grenadier. The name of our reservist is Kreienbring and he is visible with shooting cord class I.
