would guess most for Landwehr-Infanterie or Gebirgstruppen, Gebirgsinfanterie:

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/K.k._Gebirgstruppe
http://www.militaria-lexikon.de/katalog/wk2/wk2_edelweiss/mi...

also looks for Zugsführer - Three six pointed white stars on the collar or collar patch:

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rangabzeichen_der_%C3%B6sterrei...

the troops:

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/K.k._Landwehr

where did he live (was born)? this maybe could help more.
and you can then ask in the present country now - so if they have still the files. need to know to get the direction we need. maybe also some other details would help to know WHERE to search for his military-service.
