    This is another favorite of mine. Titled "Fla im Erdkampf" Translation ? Unknown I think it means something like Flak gun used for land battle ? The mighty and versatile 88 in action. I love the greatcoats !

    This is an unrelated photo of the 88 in place at Normandy

    The FLAK photo shows the Fendt 88 Battery near Mariupol.
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    My friend you have a very valuable set of cards,also one of the most counterfeited.I believe you have an original set.The price for a set of reprints is about 20.00 bucks.The original cards run anywhere from 50.00 to 75.00 dollars per card!!!! If they we used with field post cancel you can bump the price up to around 100.00 bucks.Scan one card front and back and I will see if I can give you a definite answer.Great Find

    Hello, I believe the cards are 100% original TR era. They appear to have been taped in an album for many years. they have yellow discoloration around the edges & on the back along with old tape residue. When I bought them I thought I got a good deal. I know on average a post card can sell for about $10 but I figured these great combat scenes along with the SS markings would make them more valuable. I scanned one front and back for your opinion. I had to reduce the resolution in order to upload the pics, I hope this does not alter the image. Let me know what you think. Thanks for your help, Al
