    Default Can this Envelope tell me anything?

    I have this envelope, it is stamped and written on, I don't know German, but I noticed 'Feldpost' in the top right hand corner, now for some reason this flipped a switch in my head, and I was wondering if anyone on here could tell me if this envelope could give me any info on the unit or name of the sender or receiver?

    From what I can see in the stamp and on the backside, it is written from a Reserve Teillazarett (reserve military hospital) in München. My German is ok, but I can't really read this handwriting. I am sure someone else will jump in and provide you with some more info

    Cheers Dschop, I can't read any German so you've helped me a lot, well now I know this, unless anyone else has a say, I could try and find out the hospital. It's dated 22.9.42 I believe as well.

    Receiver is Herr (Mr.) Friedrich Wenner (last name could be a little different), living in town Landau, Pfalz (Palatinate), Cronichonstrasse. This street exists also today in Landau. Sender is Maria , surname hard readable, may be Hilf?

    Wow! That's awesome, thank you Tompress, ! I wonder if I could trace the soldier? Would I be able to based on Name and Place, as i doubt there was many Friedrich Wenner's in Landau haha?
    Could this Maria be his girlfriend?

    One more info...on the back of the envelope you can read MARIA HILF.
    I think the correct translation would be Our Lady of Perpetual Succour.

    Today Maria Hilf is still a Catholic Church in Munich. Maybe it was at this time a hospital...managed by
    the church. See also the stamp on the front side...
