The adress is in german , the receiver appears to be a guy named kasimierz serving in the 356 infantry regiment I st batallion 1st Coy , perhaps the same unit of the guy who envoyed the postcard . The Army of the Kingdom of Poland created in 1917 used german uniforms and insignias for infantry . with polish details . but not was really a proper Army .

Could be Freikorps, compare with the badge of the  "Freie Nachrichten-Truppen" shown in Ingo Haarcke's reference book  #621.1 page 106

Possibly but looks to be the wrong shape

I just saw a clearer picture of this arm-badge posted on WAF and it turns out to be some hitherto unknown MGSS badge substituting an MG08/15 light machinegun for the standard MG08.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
