    Hi, I hope its okay to post this here. If not I'm sorry. Anyway, I got my hands on a envelope with a few letters and a newspaper clipping.

    It would be great if someone could translate them.

    I'll just start with the envelope and one letter.

    It certainly is, thank you very much.

    I'm a bit confused though by all the different dates and all. Sorry for that, I'm pretty bad at this.

    No worries Paul.

    1st line gives the date from Mobilisation at the outbreak of war until 1st Jan 1940. Then the unit.

    Next line: the dates the Feldpost number was used for and in conjunction with that unit.

    The last line says the number was discontinued after that date. (gestrichen.)

    Cheers, Ade.

    Dear miss Karin,

    I received your kind letter and your postcard. I thank you with all my heart for all your efforts in finding out about GŁnther's fate. May god finally give us knowledge - this uncertainty is too much of a burden for all of us. We try to get in contact with comrades from GŁnther again and again, but so far we haven't been able to find someone who was with him until the end. GŁnther had to ??? (I read "Liederung zu stellen"..no clue what that means..) and hasn't been seen since. It is not yet determined if he was wounded, killed oder taken prisoner. We will have to wait and wait again. Maybe the russians will be open to reason after all and release information about our prisoners. Russian prisoners round here are receiving letters from Russia. Today I also heard that everywhere russian prisoners are working good treatment is requested. Maybe this attitude is mutual. May god give that our people are treated humanely too.
    We are happy to hear that Hans and Martin are doing well so far. We hope they all stay healthy. On 20./7. Ruth will be with us again. I've sent some pictures of us to Hans and Martin today - I hope they'll arrive safely. I'll gladly pass on your regards to Miss Wistuba. She's always visiting everytime she's arround. We rarely visit her because she lives at the other side. Ulli got married and Friedrich's wife already has a 1 year old baby. Friedrich'S wife is a really nice and kind person. I haven't met Ulli's wife yet.
    Ruth will write a letter to you soon and also send some pictures of us. From the bottom of my heart I thank you again for all your efforts- hopefully we'll be successful soon.
    Kind regards
    Mrs. K.

    Not exactly a Fun letter....but rather one more of frantic and frustrated worry and concern....I wonder if GŁnther was ever found.
