Please see my answer on How to find information on German soldiers from World War I and World War II? for general research strategies.

I did not find Caro Naphtali in the Verlustlisten, so – if the spelling is correct – I assume he did not die during the war and wasn’t injured or taken prisoner.

There is secondary literature available for the unit, which should give a general idea on battle participations e.g.: Wolters, Gerhard: Das Infanterie-Regiment König Wilhelm I. (6. württ.) No. 124 im Weltkrieg 1914-1918" - Stuttgart, C. Belsersche Verlagsbuchhandlung, 1921 (online)

The regiment was from Wurttemberg and belonged to the XIIIth army corps. The musterrolls are available via the Hauptstaatsarchiv Stuttgart (details: https://www2.landesarchiv-bw.de/ofs21/olf/struktur.php?bestand=6101&klassi=001&anzeigeKlassi=001.002). Contact them for a reproduction of Mr Naphtali’s entry.
