Great collection!

I particularly like the natural outside shots. With the studio shots, you can never be quite sure whether you’re looking at the soldiers’ real equipment. In that photo with the dangling grenade and empty holster, it’s likely photographer’s props.

I'm curious why some have empty holsters and others have their revolvers. Some of the shots are obviously in the field doing training, why wouldn't they be carring their guns? I can understand the studio photos, doubt if they could remove guns from the armory just to have a picture.

Thanks for the complement, I've been gathering WW1 firearm related cards for several years.
