    If anybody can get something from this i would be very impressed
    Between the damage and staining to the reverse side of the card and my troubles with old handwriting, all I get are bits and pieces; but I can tell you that this is a description of a trip, the route of which is also marked by a line drawn in the map on the obverse side of the card:

    • 31 May mentions the departure from Hamburg at 1 A.M., something else at 5 A.M. and the arrival at Helgoland at 9 P.M.
    • 1 June had the Skagerak at 10 A.M., the Norwegian coast was in sight at noon and at 6 P.M. they were at Stavanger. Something else half past eight P.M.
    • 2 June had something at 4 A.M., something else at 9:15 A.M. and mentions some Fjord.
    • 3 June had something at 10 A.M. and mentions the Hardangerfjord and the Sognefjord.

    Photo 8:
    "Nach dem Gefecht bei [*]

    ...i.e.:

    "After the fighting near [*]
    2 bad days"


    Photo 9:
    "Einsatz bei [*] abends
    7 Uhr"

    ...i.e.:

    "Action near [*] 7 P.M."


    Photo 10:
    "Einsatz bei [*] (im Walde)"

    ...i.e.:

    "Action near [*] (in the forest)"


    Photo 11:
    "Fertigmachen zum Einsatz.
    in
    [*]"

    ...i.e.:

    "Preparing for action.
    at
    [*]"



    * The text on each of these photographs refers to the same location. I am not 100% certain on the name of the place, but I think it says "Våler".

    It says:

    "Sieh mal ob Du mich
    findest ich sitze an
    der Hauswand u
    [= und]
    esse gerade"

    ...meaning:

    "Go see if you can
    find me I am sitting by
    the wall of the house and
    am just eating
    "
