Military Cut Fencing; Germany, 1925

Boys will be boys…

This is a personal photograph marked “Stube 53, 1925) on the back. It explain the meaning of “Kameraden” or “comrades” — those who’re sharing a chamber (Lat.: camera): Stube means “living room in civilian German, and “room” in the military usage of the word. Stube 53, of an unknown German military unit, has almost all the comforts of home… mounted buck antlers and cheap prints on the walls, a desk and chair, and a coal-fired stove. And yet, it leaves enough space for the soldiers to play with swords!
