    Default Translation from German to English? Postcard dated 1918

    Hey guys,

    I posted a picture of an Honour Cross w/swords and the accompanied photos and death card a few threads back. On the reverse of one of the photos is some writing (I'm guessing from a family friend or comrade of the aforementioned infantryman Jnatz Furlauf).

    Just out of interest, I was wondering if anyone could translate the brief inscription? I've adjusted it slightly in photoshop to try and get a clearer image.

    Thanks!

    It says...:


    "Lugau, d. [= den] 15.5.18.
    Liebe Schwester u.
    [= und] Schwager!
    Die besten Pfingstgrüße
    sendet Euch
    Adolf Thiede
    "


    ...meaning...:


    "Lugau, 15 May 18
    Dear sister and brother-in-law!
    The best Whitsun greetings
    to you from
    Adolf Thiede
    "


    (Lugau is a town in Saxony. Whitsun 1918 was on 19 May.)
