Just picked this up.

Faded ink inscription to the base.

Can anyone decipher the word circled ?????

'Weisser Sonntag Kriegsjahr 1940 von Hptm. xxxx Voss'

Whitsun 1940 from Hauptmann xxxx Voss.

What is the 'xxxx' word ????

Thanks in advance !!

Looks like you have it judging from the other letters and period names that fit.

Thanks, Joe.

There is an Egon Voss, born in Magdeburg in 1938, who is a musicologist and Wagner specialist.

I wonder if he could be related to the Hauptmann Voss ................... especially in light of the Magdeburg connection.

Father and son, maybe?

Anyway, another eBay find.

Thanks again.
