hope your are all well,
Attached 3 pictures of my wife`s ancestors originated from Poland and living in Leipzig, Germany - MUSCATBLAT Max, Herman and Alfred.
Appreciate your help advising the ranks, units and whatever other information you might find.
I have posted this in AxisForum and got advised to ask here,

here my try - please see explanation on the pictures.
On the last picture I can`t see the shoulder strap, so I can`t make out a unit.
In the casualty list there are three entries: http://des.genealogy.net/eingabe-verlustlisten/search/index
2x Alfred and 1x Max Muscatblatt (at the end with double "tt" ! ).
In the case of Alfred with the entry for the Grenadier Rgt. No. 101: http://wiki-de.genealogy.net/Gren.R_101
Kgl. Sächs. Schützen (Füsilier)-Regiment Prinz Georg Nr. 108 http://wiki-de.genealogy.net/Schütz.R_108
Kgl. Sächs. 1. (Leib-)Grenadier-Regiment Nr.100 http://wiki-de.genealogy.net/Gren.R_100
On the shoulder strap from the Flying Corps is a small number - but unfortunately it is not readable.
Are there any notes on the back of the photo (written, stamp, etc.)??

Addendum: the list of casualties also includes injured and wounded soldiers! http://des.genealogy.net/search/show/1578878
If it is Alfred in picture A with the wounded badge, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wound_Badge could the last picture perhaps show him in the uniform of Grenadier Regiment No.100?
- leicht verwundet = slightly wounded http://files.genealogy.net/verlustlisten/05652.jpeg
- page before: 12th Company (Grenadier-Regiment Nr.100) - fought 8 to 13 March 1915: http://files.genealogy.net/verlustlisten/05651.jpeg

... upps - Gefreiter https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gefreiter in the list of casualties 1915 http://des.genealogy.net/search/show/1578878 - I think it`s an other Muscatblatt. Sorry! ; - )

... arggh - sorry, it is too late in the evening - here a new picture B with the correct shoulder strap!
I will stop now before I make any more stupid mistakes! ; - )
Best regards Jens

thank you very much for your extensive answer. I will consult with a relative German origin.
Yes, the MUSCATBLATT (1 or 2 T`s...) were born in Jena. so these is the right record
will need to examine the pages better. I understand the OCR do read the German writings...

The Flieger-Bataillon (Flying Corps) must be a N°1.
The 3rd company of prussian Flieger-Bataillon 1 was a saxon one.
It also could be a 6, because the Flieger-Ersatz-Abteilung N°6 was from Großenhain (Saxony)

I#ve seen a grave from ALFRED MUSCATBLATT today in Leipzig, Neuer Israelitischer Friedhof.
