Some WW1 Photographs...

This picture, according to its caption, has been taken in Verona in 1914 and shows us the “two photo-electric” (teams) of the 4th AA Battery. As there are 10 men, we can easily deduce that each team was composed by one NCO and 4 men. But what are these “photo-electric” teams?

The patches on their sleeves help to understand it: these men belonged to the crews who served cars with a special lighting system (see this post and this other one).
