Hi,

the first card is a plea for money and/or food to parents and siblings. He lacks both and writes that he is hungry.

2nd card is also about money. The father had sent his son 20 marks for which he thanks him. The rest is about health status of different family members.

3rd card informs addressee that sender got home well and that he has to do a lot of military exercices, apart from that no news.

Pleasure!

It´s interesting how one design seems to have sold over many years. That speaks either for a popular design or lack of choice for the customers.

I read a description of one similar that called it a ‘regimental card’

ie regimental issue.....

Hi,

would like to see that. Usually Regimentskarten bear the number of the specific regiment which makes them a Regimentskarte in the first place.
