    Hi Chaps & HPL2008, here's another KM Coastal Art. I need help to translate. It's in Sütterlin script (I presume) so I'm totally stumped
    ...And so am I. Sorry, but I can't make out a single word of this one. Pretty, but really odd handwriting.

    Hi Chaps & HPL2008, here's a new postcard of a happy Heer soldier. As usual I need help to translate. I can pick out a few of the obvious bits; but not the lot.

    The way he's wearing his cap is unusual to me & he seems to be wearing a badge on the side in the WW1 Austro-Hungarian style. Shame more of the badge can't be seen,

    Thanks in advance for any help,

    Cheers,

    Richard.

    It says...

    "Immer nur lächeln!
    A. toi.!
    Dein
    [...]
    15.9.1943 südl. [= südlicher] Ladoga-See"

    ...meaning...

    "Always keep smiling!*
    A. toi.!**
    Your
    [signed]***
    15 Sept. 1943 Southern Lake Ladoga"



    *) A rough translation. This phrase is a reference to the (still) popular song "Immer nur lächeln" from the operetta Das Land des Lächelns (The Land of Smiles) by Franz Lehár. See here for a 1929 recording of the song: RICHARD TAUBER SINGS IMMER NUR LACHELNS 1929 - YouTube

    **) This is not German. While the spelling is a bit off, apparently this is supposed to be "À toi!", a French salute/toast meaning something like "Here's to you!" (Or at least that's what I gather from some online research; I don't speak French.)

    ***) Sorry, can't quite decypher the signature.

    Many thanks HPL2008, brilliant work as usual. I like the way he mentions the smile & how he's trying to cheer up his obviously worried wife. The Youtube link is great & really adds to the story,

    Cheers,

    Richard.
