@1916 WW1 RPPC photo entry German army Command shelter near Ypres

Postcard photo of camouflaged shelter built into ground. 

Two sets of German text on back. First I cannot decode, except for a couple of words:

 "Dez. 16 Vor Ypern" (December 16 Before Ypres)  

Second set is:  "Unterstände d. Batl. Stabes in der Bereitschaft"  (Shelter of Battalion Staff in readiness).

Photo was part of a lot associated with the 163rd infantry regiment.

Nice condition.

(Red text is an electronic watermark that is not physically part of the photo for sale)
