    Default Funeral ?

    This could perhaps be a funeral of an officer
    There is a written text on the reverse, but I cannot read the text, but I can read the year 5/3 1941, and it is a funeral, perhaps marine.
    Can anyone tell/ guess more about this funeral ?
    Regards
    John

    What makes you think it's a funeral?

    The text says:

    "Einweihung
    der Gemeinschaftshalle
    Ob.St.Arzt
    [= Oberstabsarzt] Dr. [...]
    bei der Ansprache"

    ...i.e.:

    "Opening ceremony
    of the community hall
    Oberstabsarzt Dr.
    [...]
    during his speech"

    (Sorry; I can't quite make out the naval physician's name.)

    Perhaps the ceremony was dead boring.....?
