    I agree with those that the guy on left is Heer (eagle, collar patches). I think the guy on the right is political - the collar tabs look like Kreisleitung and the cap matches.

    This is a letter I have received from Berlin regarding my the gentleman on the right I know this was during the First World War. But could it explain his uniform.
