    It is certainly SS, as the marking states SS Field Post on the envelope. The sender's name is listed on the reverse side of the envelope as well and states that he is an SS Private.

    It certainly is an original SS field post letter, I have some very similar ones in my collection. My German isnt good enough to translate it, but if you are lucky, someone here will. These period letters are hard to read, even for many German speakers, as the style of writing has changed since the war. It looks to me like he is 'SS Mann (private) H Heim'.
