I can't remember what's the original source... Whatever, some of the captions given on this site are certainly incorrect.

for example
http://www.Fluffy feathers/gallery/album01/French_soldiers_in_winter_gear?full=1
These guys clearly aren't French. I think they are Swiss.

The 1914 uniform has this kind of jacket, but with red trousers and smaller hats. The 1915+ uniform is entirely light blue-grey, often with a long coat, or khaki for colonial units. The hats these guys have look nothing like the French kÚpi, and thier rifles look neither like Lebels nor like Berthiers.

The fact that the hut is painted in national colours makes me think this is a national border checkpoint.

On the last one you can see our mysterious guys on the other side of the fence, behind the 3 French soldiers and their NCO (right).

Great find Darky.

I know nothing about WW1 uniforms, but I reckon these guys must be cavalry.

They certainly would find it very difficult to march with those swords, they must over 4 feet long Laugh
