Just returned from the Reno Gun Show and a trip to the West.

Excellent photographs of your 1908 DWM marked to the 66 Infantry Regiment Machine Gun Company, Weapon no. 16.

The 66th Infantry Regiment has the honor name "3.Magdeburgisches Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 66." its headquarters was Magdeburg, and it was founded in 1860. During World War I it was part of the 7th, 52nd, and 113 Infantry Divisions and battled on the Western front.

Like George, would like very much to see photographs of your holster.

This is certainly nice. I recently got hold of a series of photographs, taken by someone serving in Magdeburg, in the 66th Infantry Regiment. They date from the 1935-1936 era and the tower visible in the background still exists in Burg bei Magdeburg.
