Do you recognize the uniform of the soldier? -snip-

My limited knowledge gained >from trying to identify a photo of
my grandfather wearing a uniform and medal in 1917, leads me to
believe that the photo at
< http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v131/HomeWork/soldier.jpg >

does not depict an Austrian uniform. The telltale signs are the
cap and the indication of rank on the collar.
