221 Reserve Infantry Regiment Postcard - translation needed

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Another picture arrive for the collecton.

I'm pretty sure its content is trivial, but I would like to know its translation in order to have an idea if I can decypher the soldiers name.

Thanks in advance.

Douglas

The one helmet cover says "R 121". I'm sure there was a Wilhelm II in almost every regiment! :)

Hello Chip!

Yes, you´re right! I didn´t see the helmet cover...

Well, unfortunately we don´t know, if Wilhelm is his first or second name...

Gentlemen . It was current into the German Army if a regiment have two Mullers ;by case to call one Muller I and the Other Muller II irrespective of their first names.

Yes. Müller is only a second name. Wilhelm could be both. But normally with a I or II it's the second name.

Prussian officers often said, a soldier only has one first name - his rank... :D
