There are a lot of photos of Freikorps out there. Usually they're identifiable by the presence of armored cars which weren't common at all in WWI, at least on the German side. A lot of them also wore the distinctive Ottoman model Stahlhelm, which was missing the front brim to facilitate the prayers Muslims did; I believe this was because many Western Front spec helmets were destroyed by the allies at the end of the war. The Death's Head insignia was also used by Freikorps more than it was during the war.

This photo might even be from the same set as the previous one, with the caption "Armored Car in the Street of the Capitol" meaning Berlin. There was a lot of fighting between Freikorps and Communist insurgents during the postwar period in German cities and this is an example of it.

Men probably preparing for an attack, not sure of the exact story. Notice the spikes have been removed from their pickelhaubes, this is probably 1915 shortly before the introduction of the Stahlhelm when the officers realized the spike made an excellent target for the enemy.

Höhe 344 means Hill 344 which is near Champneuville, north of Verdun. You can spot the hill 344 on this map (top left, between Samogneux and Beaumont)
the photo was probably taken shortly after the start of the Battle of Verdun. The hill 344 was in french sector before the first day of the battle (on 21 Feb. 1916) until 24 Feb. 1916. As you correctly noticed, these men have not received their Stahlhelm yet, so i guess they are troopers of the "second wave"

"Until 1889 the lance was only carried by Germany's regiments of Uhlans (lancers). However, following Kaiser Wilhelm II's statement that the lance was the 'Queen' of weapons all German cavalry regiments were issued with them. German lances were hollow tubes made of rolled steel, with a length of 3.2 meters they were usually made in three sections fitted together. It weighed 1.6 kg and was extremely well balanced when held at the leather wrapped grips halfway down.
"The Stahlrohrlanze was longer than both its French and British counterpart, and seems to have been used more in a couching fashion where possible. Certainly General von Poseck in his accounts of the German cavalry's actions in France and Belgium 1914 always references lances being lowered and couched against targets, rather than swung or jabbed with. This was seen in the overrunning a rear-guard of French infantry at Rocquigny, 25 June 1914. Here the Guard Cavalry Division charged with 'such impact that many of the French were killed outright with the lance.'
"The Stahlrohrlanze had a design flaw in its fixed eyelets for attaching pennants of state colours for parade, just below the blade. Even though pennants were not attached for combat by 1914, the eyelets could not be removed and could become stuck in a target, especially following the deep penetration that would result from couched us.(fuck)

A while back I wrote an article regarding the Lewis Gun. One of the most interesting things I learned was regarding its use on aircraft.

Because of how the weapon worked, it couldn't be used with an interrupter to fire through the propeller. What they used instead was the "Foster Mount", which had the machine gun mounted above the wing. The long, curved metal track you see allows the pilot to pull the weapon down to load in a fresh pan magazine.

One Ace, Albert Ball, noticed that the Lewis Guns mounted still had their original triggers, and could be fired from its position all the way at the bottom of the track. Using this, he was able to shoot down enemy planes from their blind spot below!

I also wrote an article about the Winchester 1897 shotgun (they were about the weapons in the latest Call of Duty WWII game). Unfortunately none of the pictures I have from the Great War are high enough quality for this board, but I can still hopefully share something interesting.

The Trench Gun grade used in the war was extremely effective, with the ability to slamfire buckshot and affix a goddamn sword to the end of it. It was so deadly that the Germans formally protested against its use, saying that it violated the Hague Convention as it caused unnecessary suffering.

This is coming from the first country to use chemical weapons in the war, mind you.

Germany even went as far as saying that any prisoners taken with either the weapon or even shotgun shells would forfeit his life.

The United States essentially told Germany to deal with it, and retaliated by saying that if American prisoners were harmed, they'd do the same to any Germans found with flamethrowers, or one of these bad boys.

Thankfully this happened in September of 1918, so neither side was able to follow through with their threats.

War is weird.

That was France tho, with their "tear gas" that included ethyl bromoacetate, which by today standarts is a T+ chemical agent. Even then, the German way of chemical usage wasn't disallowed: According to Article 23 of the Hague convention (a) "Poison or poisoned weapons" only prohibits the poisoning of objects such as water, food and soil, and the shooting of poisoned arrows, but not bullet like projectiles which release poison. And section e) "Unnecessary suffering" allows the use of chemical weapons if this is "necessary" for a military advantage. [2] Both of these were true, especially the second point since the gas weapons used by Germans were a "Lückenfüller" or a stopgap because the British naval blockade made it impossible for Germany to build howitzer shells, which is also why they ran around with grenades most of them time. Also sawtooth knives weren't used since 1917 by the Germans because of the complaints, not that it matters anyways because engineers only used them for barbed wire.
