Hello Rob.

Here goes:

Gruss und Kuss or greetings and a kiss;

Nichts Neues weiter or nothing new so far;

Anbei meine neueste Aufnahme or enclosed the newest photo of me.

The rest I am unable to make out.

Bernhard H. Holst

Hello Rob and Bernhard,

A small addition... that photograph is taken in Wervicq. That's a small Flemish town near the French border. In modern Flemish it is Wervik

Kind regards from Flanders,

Jef

Is Wervik in or near Ten Brielen? I believe the latter is on the French/Belgian border North west of Lille? The writer dates this "Tenbrielen 17.4.71"

Thanks Rob

Hello Rob,

Ten Brielen is a hamlet of Comines-Warneton (french speaking part of Belgium) It's along the road from Comines to Zandvoorde. On modern maps it's marked as Timbriele. It's about 2,5 Km from Wervik.
