Hi,

I just picked this up at Ebay. As my major interest is firearms, this photo is a P08 bonanza.

I simply never saw so many in a single picture.

I would like to know what is written on the back, units, names, etc.

Thanks in advance.

Douglas.

Hello Douglas!

Unfortunately I can´t read the text, but he writes, that he es a Waldhornist. That´s a musician who plays the French Horn. His unit is 2nc company of Garde-Jäger-Bataillon

Thanks a lot for the transcription.

I made a quick research at the Volksbund site and there is a Wilhelm Lindmüller, rank "Fahrer", listed as KIA on June 14th, 1916.

I'm afraid he is the sender of this postcard.

Douglas
