    Default Luftwaffe Photo Album

    Hi Everyone,
    I thought I'd show you my newest acquisition. This was a recent birthday present, some of you may recognize it from Herr Butschek's recent auction. I have been after a photo album for a long time now.

    Any idea what the writing on the 2nd picture means? It looks like a poem of some sort.

    Enjoy!

    Jake, Thank you for showing this photo album - very interesting set of images, with lots of action and interest; well composed shots too. Have you been able to discover the identity of the subject?

    Regards, Philip

    It roughly translates as:

    "The joy to create
    That is the fount which splits its own ground
    One sip from this wave
    And you taste the happiness of the world
    "

    If it is a quote, I don't recognize it.

    By the way, I love the photo with the caption "Das Bier... der dritte Kamerad", meaning: "Beer... the third comrade". Now that would make for a perfect ad!

    Thank you for the translation HPL. The beer caption is really neat!
