oh, sooo bad about the mustard gas.
i know that much was used in WW1.....

the medaillon on cap i can not make out really. if would be better to see, it would help a lot to find faster where he belonged. the belt think all had the same. double-headed-eagle for Austria and Hungary standing:

ask for Hungary "Skoumi", he is from there and knows if and where to find military-records and other records you would need for your family-search.

but if was from Hungary then must have been normally from Honved from the hungarian part of the Empire i guess - so then ku Landwehr/royal hungarian Landwehr:
but i´m little bit confused as it looks like for the before stated from not-hungarian part. A-H-military can often be very confusing ;) maybe he was stationed in another part of Empire....

think military-service to find at state-archive in Budapest, but ask Skoumi before:

mmh, close to present slovakian border in any case.,or.r_cp.r_...
Losoncz(former now Lučenec, Slovakia. so Putnok nearly between Miskolcz/Miskolc and Losoncz on old maps when you go from Wien/Vienna to the east. on first map you can see what was stationed around by taking symbols right below. in any case head of military-commando for that area was 6 Kassa/ Kaschau. district-commando can have been 34 Kassa or 25 Losoncz (if he was really in his own area stationed). old maps for military in A-H:

when you can find his troops he was stationed it would be interesting to state here, as i´m very curios after knowing his residence-place and seeing his military-picture.

hope this helps in any way.
good luck!
