The Pride of Company Three is a 1932 German comedy film directed by Fred Sauer. The musketeer Gustav Diestelbeck has a problem with his superior, the Feldwebel Krause: Both soldiers are in love with Emma Wacker, but she prefers Diestelbeck and is therefore harassed by Krause. To prevent a meeting of the sergeant with Emma, the soldier triggers a false alarm. But when there is a real alarm shortly thereafter, they are enthusiastic about the speed of mobilization, and Diestelbeck experiences unexpected honors.

The following weapons were used in the film The Pride of Company Three:

Mauser Gewehr 1871

The German recruits including Gustav Diestelbeck (Heinz Rühmann) are armed with Mauser Gewehr 1871. During the last scene, three soldiers' rifles are fitted with Seitengewehr 71/84 bayonets.
