the photos from your collection are interesting, very much so.
But there is hardly any exchange, it is only consumed here...
Most of us know that hundreds and thousands of the soldiers of these MG divisions also fell, like all other front-line fighters in those days.
The few photos of these completely destroyed departments are gruesome, shocking, a pile of flesh and blood.
Whether this should be a topic in your area, I can answer badly, there were only losers at that time, more is not known to me personally.
I always think of the photo of my great-grandfather Franz, with his wife and the two oldest daughters from the war year 1916.
Unfortunately, I can not post this photo here, maybe later once...
An actually still young man, but the great-grandfather seems on this photo, as if he was not present at all, like a "visitor" from another world.
The suffering and horror were hammered into the man's face...
The paradise of the successful lends itself perfectly to a hell for the unsuccessful. (Bertold Brecht on Hollywood)
