    Thanks Pammy! I have only seen a flower in a feldpost 1 time before so i think it's very rare.

    Daniel, do you know if there is a meaning with the dried flower? I got one as well that was sent home by a family member while he served in Nordland.

    Actually I have no idea, but I would guess that it means the same as if you would do it today. Would love to see your flower!

    Hi Mads, your is an Edelweiss. (Leontopodium alpinum)

    I don't know the other one and I am in the gardening trade. But I hope someone will.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks Ade,
    The edelweiss is only growing in mountainous regions, right?

    Hi Mads, yes, that is right.

    I went looking for one aged 20 on my first trip to Austria!

    German Mountain troops or Gebirgsjäger wore a metal cap badge of this flower and still do today.

    Cheers, Ade.
