Yes, DSWA for sure. Rifle looks like a standard G98 or possibly a Schutztruppe Gewehr 98. Can anyone confirm that?

And yes, standard use of holster. I guess butt downwards was more likely to stay in the holster when galloping around.

Cheers
Chris

I'm pretty sure the rifle's a 98.I've read they carried the rifle butt down in the bucket with their arm through the sling to stabilize it.

Hi Walter123,

Yes of course, - Thousands; - You would have to specify your question in more detail. Which unit, which time frame, . . . and so one . . .

Cheers Holger
