  12. I tried to read and translate the text for you. The posting is old, so I don't know if you found out more since now. I read: O.U.(short for "ohne Ortsunterkunft"), den 11.7.1944 Zur Erinnerung an meine schöne Zeit bei der "Ha.S.Flo." vom 01-12-42 bis Pfingsten 44. Herzliche Grüße dein Sohn Erich On the left corner: Erhalten am 23. Juli 44. A.?.

Best greetings, your son Erich. Left corner: Received on 23. July 44. A.?.
  13. I have the book from Tischer about HK Thor and I am very interested in your collections and informations about the second travel of Thor. My granduncle was on board. I found him mentioned in the book of Tischer on one photo there. His name was Wilhelm "Willi" Schlummer. So if you can give me some new informations or perhaps can show me documents or photos with my granduncle I would be very happy.
  14. Hello, I just found this forum during my search for informations about the second travel of the german Hilfskreuzer Thor or "ship 10". Thank you for accepting my request. I am interested in Thor and some others marine items. It is a part of my search for family roots. The brother of my grandpa was serving in the marine. I hope to find some new informations here. This was my grand uncle, Wilhelm Schlummer.
