    According to Wikipedia, Jäger, which means "hunter" or "huntsman" in German, came by extension to denote light infantrymen whose forester background made them suitable for skirmishing as individuals rather than as a drilled and regimented body of soldiers. These photos of Jagers are from pre-war to 1918.

    The Latin countries use their word for "hunter" in the same fashion, of course: chasseur, cacciatore, cazador. It's interesting that in English, we use rather the name of their weapon.
