    Nice; but do allow me to point out that this card has actually nothing to do with a "Wihelm Howen"; it was sent from the city of Wilhelmshaven. (The dedication is from a man with the first name Heinrich to his brother.)

    No problem. If it is of interest to you, here is the full text. (The man was somewhat fond of abbreviations.):


    "W. haven [= Wilhelmshaven] d. [= den] 15.8.11

    L.
    [= Lieber] Bruder

    Ein kleines Andenken an
    W. haven
    [= Wilhelmshaven] und an meine Dienstzeit
    sendet Dir Dein Bruder

    Heinr.
    [= Heinrich]"


    ...meaning...:


    " Wilhelmshaven, 15/8/11

    Dear brother

    A little memory from
    Wilhelmshaven and my term of service
    sent to you by your brother

    Heinrich
    "

    Wow thanks for taking the time to translate i know for a fact i would never have made that out especially with all the abbreviations

    i find it hard to make out the writing on English papers of that time
