This is from a very nice Verdun postcard... the sender traced his route on a map...

From what i can see... he must have been a bavarian...

25th May - 13th Jun Kämpfe um die Wabengräben im Thiaumont-Wald und um die Thiaumont-Ferme 1. Bayer. Inf. Div. And parts of 2. Bayer. Inf. Div.

Hi Chris,

I think, he is from Baden, 1. Badisches Leib-Grenadier-Regiment Nr. 109.

11. Juni 1916

Liebling!

hebe bitte diese Karte

sehr sehr gut auf! Es ist

eine teuere Erinnerung

da wir 109er diesen Teil

gestürmt haben!

Herzliche Grüße

Franz

Darling!

please keep this card very, very safe!

It is a valuable recollection because we 109er forced this part!

Kind Regards

Franz

... this part! = a special location on the card on the other side?

He was in the 19th Bavarian Inf Regt... so this is a mystery....

Where is the mystery ?

This unit was in "Flandern" and "Franz Flandern" at this time.

Is there other entries after this date in his Militärpass ?

Hi Chris,

It's hard to read but could it be "nach Verzeichniss" ???

Best.

Any ideas for 15?

I think it is "Mutter..." and the rest is greek...

Chris

Chris, all I can make out is: Mutter verst. 25.10.18 (most likely in this case abbreviation for verständigt but it is also the abbr. for verstorben). The rest are more abbreviations, sorry.
