Guys,

yesterdays finds that are WW1 related.

Like the third pic which is the reverse of the two patriotic cards, they are nicely marked. I think if the enemy captured your mail you would have a field day back then from an intelegence point of view.

Boris,

I have no idea, it is just a few postcards for me, I don't really collect WW1 stuff unless I like the picture or markings etc. I doubt it is Hitler as they all tended to look a lot alike back then, at least to me anyway!

Regards

Jock :)

Hello Jock, I think the german soldiers position in the post-card is typical to place better in the photo, I think there is one (photo, no postcard) With Hitler very like to this. I'll search in my archives that unfortunalety are not indexed.

Thanks

Boris
