Sentry from the 37 Landsturm Infanterie Bataillon (maybe) - unknown Armeekorps (by drakegoodman)

Fur coats such as this were distributed in limited numbers to areas of the front with colder climates. No regulations existed until 1918 to describe the cut and design of these coats, so a wide variation of patterns can be seen in period photographs. The coat was large enough to be worn over the regular greatcoat and would cover the wearer’s accoutrements.
