Below are the pictures of the 39th Tomsk infantry regiment that participated in battles of WWI. By the way the regiment had been very old. Its soldiers even fought in the battles against France in 1812 near Borodino.
These rare photos show how the soldiers used to fight, what weapons they used, what uniform they had on during World War the First.

Don’t know, but this photo seems spooky to me. Those guys behind are like ghosts and that one on the right with the mustache seems not to belong to this photo…
