Sergeant major Josip Broz Tito in the Austro-Hungarian army. He is the one with the rifle.

The picture was taken sometimes before October 3, 1914. The picture was first published in Zagreb weekly Ilustrovani list.

The title is “Our soldiers on Drina river”. The caption under the picture is “Trenches of our soldiers on Drina river in Bosnia, in which the enemy is awaited, also where soldiers sleep at night”

Page from the newspapers.

A different picture, taken on the same occasion was published on November 11, 1914 in Jutarnji list.

During an exhibition in 1970, Tito confirmed it was him in the picture but claimed the picture was taken in Galicia (Ukraine) which doesn’t fit the time-frame since his unit was sent to the Russian front much later.
