    I collect mainly WWII German Militaria. Badges, awards, blades, photos, etc.. A few WWI German items have found their way into my collection as well. Just received this photo, it is my first WWI German photo. I did some internet researching on WWI German uniforms and guessed they are Bavarians, then a WWI German collector took a look and agreed with me. Nothing going on in this photo, just a group pic. I do think that the soldat in the front row, first on the right end has a look about him and seems rather uninterested in the whole affair.

Kriegserinnerungsmedaille mit Schwertern - Kaiserlich Türkischer Eisernen Halbmond??? - Ostdmedaille TWM is possible, but with the Ost Medal added on to the end, this could also be a West Wall ribbon, added on. Note the slight split after the Hungarian Commemorative Medal, leaving the last two ribbons looking like they have been added after the bar was made.
