    A light dusting of talcum powder may help the legibility here......

    Hi.
    The recipient is quite clearly H.Pownug. Pownug is a common German surname.
    Brieg Bez. Breslau = Brieg named town about 42 km from Breslau (German name of Wroclaw).
    Glowna? Polish word glowna means "general" or "main". There is an airport in Brieg, so perhaps the airport was named "Glowna" (the main airport?).
    About the numbers: it could be 11.2. Russians circuled Breslau completely 13.2.1945, so the date 11th February could be the date the last planes left the airport of Brieg.

    Hi.
    Breaf google search brings up existing german names like:
    Marius Pownug
    Reinhold Pownug
    Ingrid Pownug
    Günther Pownug
    Johann Pownug
    Peter Pownug
    Rudolf Pownug

    You may be right that it is not very common name, but it still exists in Germany. It is more common in Poland, so it might be related to East Prussia.

    Correction to my notice!
    The name Pownug is related to southern parts of former Prussia - Silesia, which was located besides former Czech Sudetenland.
