Border post manned by men from Landsturm Infanterie Bataillon ‘Wesel’ (VII 17), September 1916

Border post manned by men from Landsturm Infanterie Bataillon ‘Wesel’ (VII 17), September 1916

Letter on reverse authored at Heidelberg Erzg. on 8.9.1916. No postmarks etc.

Possibly some kind of border post manned by these fellows from Landsturm Infanterie Bataillon ‘Wesel’. These men are located just a couple of kilometres from the (then) Bohemian border, now Czechoslovakia.

The men wear the M1913 Wachstuchmütze, although this overexposed photograph tends to make the caps look slightly like the M1914 variant. M1907/10 (or 1913) tunics with M1909 ammunition pouches.

Armament consists of Beutegewehr, or captured Russian Mosin-Nagant M91s.

LoHou Border Crossing

LoHou Border Crossing

Taken from my hotel room on the 19th floor of the Shangri-La. This is a very busy border crossing between Hong Kong (background of the photo) and the city of Shenzhen in mainland China.

The main Shenzhen train station is on the right. The Hong Kong MTR rail line terminates at the brown building. The Shenzhen subway system is underneath the walkway down the center. On the left is an enormous shopping mall. This is where you go to buy any knock off product, bootleg movie, and software package you could imagine. It is very crowded and hot so the experience is unpleasant to say the least.

See where this picture was taken. [?]

Border Beach

Border Beach

You can see people meeting, playing at the fence. I’m think, though not sure, that some people may have been moving between the two sides down there, digging (for clams?) with a shovel.

There was a border truck constantly watching from just out of the shot, so maybe people to test the waters and see how far they can go…

Also, this park is busy with Mexican and American nationals coming go pass money and gifts through the fence, so there is no exchange fee such as 10% with western union for transfer and currency exchange, etc… Though I’ve heard since moving away from San Diego, that the new border fence will prevent this. I’m not sure that’s a good thing.
