Hi Uwe,

thanks a million... ages ago, that is what I thought... then when I looked at it this week I just could not see a "W" there ...

The confirmation is a relief...

Hello Chris and Dave.

I read the second entry as "Zellgewebentzuendung rechtes Knie" or tissue inflammation right knee.

Hi Chris:

... durch die Gruppe Jeperen, Gen.Kdo. Gardekorps

The Gruppe Jeperen was also called Gruppe Ueperen or Gruppe Ypern. From 10.9.17-23.10.18 it was the same as the Gardekorps

Hello Chris.

Here is what I read :

Ueber Ihren freundlichen Gruss habe ich mich sehr gefreut. Hoffentlich geht es Ihnen recht gut im schoenen Driburg ( ? ). Ihre hervorragenden Leistungen als Stosstruppfuehrer der Leibkompanie bleiben mir unvergesslich.

Sie war schon ein ganzer Mann ( ? ) !

Semper Talis

Stets Ihr alter einstiger Btl.Komd.

Franz von ??

Cannot read the last name,

Stephani was Gauleiter of Stahlhelmbund Gross-Berlin. Here's a shot of him speaking at a rally and another (he's on the left) with Rittmeister Morozowicz.566df6512cbf1_Bundesarchiv_Bild_102-11411185758.jpg.fb50dbdd776df239d24c8185d1e0
