    Default My first feldpost, need some help

    Hi all, I got my first feldpost to go with some relic items im displaying, dont worry I wont ask anyone to decipher the entire letter I just need some help with what rank or position the sender was in, it was sent from koblemz, 3./ N.A.A 33 if anyone knows what that means it would be cool to know. The letter was written on dec 24 1942 and mailed out on dec 25, kinda cool having a xmas letter. it also came with a snow filled picture , if someone wants to decipher any other parts of it that would be appreciated but not expected.
    thank you for all your knowledge. Click image for larger version.

    That is a very neat feldpost, I also doubt that one with that date is common.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    The letter says:

    "Liebes Berndchen.

    Zum heutigen Weihnachtsfeste sende ich Dir und dem lieben
    [...]elein die besten Glück- und Segenswünsche. Möge das liebe Christkind Euch Beide und auch den guten Vati beschützen und wieder gesund in die Heimat [...] kommen lassen. Mit Gottes Schutz wird sich schon alles zu unserem Besten wenden.
    Viele weihnachtliche Grüße an Dich,
    [...]elein und Mutter.

    Dein Schwager

    Karl
    "


    Meaning:


    "Dear Berndchen.

    For today's Christmas festival, I send the best good wishes and blessings to you and to dear
    [...]elein. May the Christ Child protect you and dear father and have you [...] return home in good health. With God's protection, in the end all will turn out for the best for us.
    Many yuletide greetings to you,
    [...]elein and mother.

    Your brother-in-law

    Karl
    "


    "Berndchen" is a diminutive/affectionate form of the male first name Bernd. I can't quite make out the first letters in the name of the woman referenced twice; the ending "-elein" is also a diminutive. (From the context, she is surely Bernd's wife and Karl's sister.)

    wow that is amazing too know, thank you all for the help, and thank you for taking the time to translate, according to google they were french volunteers of the waffen ss, kompanie 57 signals later changed to 33, but that could be wrong since not many french guys are named karl lol.

    I don't think that 3 /NAA had anything to do with the waffen SS or the Charlemagne Divison , it was a Wehrmacht signals training unit !!
