    I have my difficulties to read the text.

    First word is "Zum .." the I can read "Bataillonskommandeur"

    Signature ?? "Wilhelm Craft" ???

    Close-up from the man:

    What unit was "K.S. Karab.Regt." - K?niglich S?chsisches ??

    The sender was a Offiziers-Stellvertreter Gustav Nitze, send the letter to his wife and told her that he has got no mail since the 30th december 1917.

    Any help is highly appreciated, as always.

    the k?nigl.-S?chs. Karabinier-Regiment (2. schweres) was a Saxon "heavy" cavalry regiment analogous with a Prussian K?rassier Regiment. Formed on the 1st of November 1849 as the 3. Reiter-Regiment it took it's final title on the 23rd of April 1876.

    At the time the card was sent the regiment was serving as a Kavallerie-Sch?tzen-Regiment (dismounted cavalry rifle regiment) in the East in the Dvina (D?na) sector. It moved to Finland in March 1918.
