A fantastic photo !!!!!

This is Freikorps von Hülsen.

There were different kind of those oak-leaves, but I think I see the number 262 upon the shoulder straps. Correct me please, if I´m wrong.

Freikorps Hülsen was also called Brigade Potsdam, built december 26, 1918

The soldiers from Res.Inf.Rgt.262 became III.Bataillon/Freiwilligen Detachement Grothe, which belonged to Freikorps Hülsen.

Later they became III./Reichswehr-Inf.Rgt.6.

Det. Grothe had also black-white-black stripes (appendix 2, red arow), in this case we probably see a black-white-red stripe.

Normally Det. Grothe had a black-white-red chevron, this black-white-black band was worn on the collar (331.2), but these variation is also known.

Photos are from: "Katalog der Uniformabzeichen der deutschen Freikorps" (Ingo G. Haarcke, ISBN 978-3-89757-500-4)
