Swedish Landstorm Youth With m/94 Carbine

Here is another old postcard, this time featuring a young guy from the paramilitary swedish organisation Landsstormen. He keeps his m/94 ready, waiting for signs of enemy activity.

Note that his m/94 carbine lacks the m/94-14 bayonet lug. This one never got modified for bayonet use, during the first world war.

The text roughly translates something like this: "Recon. The Stockholm Landstorm Youth Department." Practicing marksmanship and being active in different more or less military organisations or shooting clubs was very common in the first half of the 20th century. Clubs got free ammo from the army, and everyone was happily plinking away with their mausers.
