German sailor of a ‘Seewehr-Abteilung’. The ‘Seewehr’ was the Imperial German Navy’s equivalent to the Army’s Landsturm/Landwehr (militia).
This sailor carries a captured Russian M1891 3-line Mosin Nagant rifle fitted with custom-made muzzle adaptors. These adaptors allowed German bayonets to be attached to the rifle.
