Help with my WW1 Dogtag

Post by TGLWXX » 09 Jan 2020 11:49

Hello,

I have a WW1 German dog tag. I don't understand everything on it, maybe someone can help me. It says:

IOH.WEIHS. MIETRACHING.
25.12.92 B.A.DEGGENDORF
2.BAY.FELD.ART.RGT.4.BTTR.N.116.

I don't know why there is no full name on it. Thanks in advance for your answers!

:)

I don't know why there is no full name on it.
Perhaps it is Joh(ann) Weihs from Mietraching in Bavaria, if you read it correctly.
It's always better to upload a photo for everyone to see.
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.
