ViewMate: WW1 Austro-Hugarian army uniform #austria-czech

Hi friends - I have posted two photos to ViewMate of my
grandfather Adolf FINKELSTEIN in the Austro-Hungarian army
during World War 1. He was a sergeant (Feldwebel), as
indicated by the collar insignia:

uniforms

The photos are:

Is it possible to tell >from the uniform what part of the
army he served in? He apparently served on the Italian
front.

Please respond via the ViewMate site. Thanks.
