Lieber Hans

Sende dir Herzliche Grüsse aus Flandern

bin hier mit Landsturmleuten,

mit welchen ich auf Patrouille

bin in einem Dorf unweit Menin

Ein Unteroffizier hat uns geknipst.

Dein Onkel Hugo

Dear Hans.

I send you heartfelt Greetings from Flanders. I'm here with some Landsturm men, I went on patrol with in a village near Menen. An Unteroffizier took the picture.

Your uncle Hugo

Menen or Menin, a town in Flanders was located only a few kilometers behind the frontline. In 1917, the inhabitants had to evacuate the town, which was severely damaged during the fighting.
