    If you newspapers on the net, be careful to the price !
    Last year, i bought the last copy from Der Adler for 190 €, now, I know it's impossible to sell it at this price. Internet broke the prices.
    Now, you want one picture and you find what you want.

    Thumbs up

    I have no doubt as to its originality! I'd love to get my hands on one for my Fj and Kreta collection!
    I haven't been on Kreta since 1991 for the 50. aniversary. Spent a week+ wandering around the battle fields. I was much saddened to learn that the Fj monument had been torn down.

    What is your 2nd post?
    "Veste Kreta“, von der Prop.Kp. beim Fstg.Kdt.Kreta, FPNr. 05774 P/ 68055E. Erste Ausgabe 28.5.1942. " ??
    As for the abbreviations: "Prop.Kp." = "Propagandakompanie", "Fstg.Kdt." ="Festungskommandant" and "FPNr." = "Feldpostnummer".

    It translates as:

    "'Veste Kreta', by the Propaganda Company with the Garrison Commander of Crete, field post no. 05774 P/ 68055E. First issue 28/5/1942"

    I have yet to see any reprinted items of this sort that are not readily identified as such.
    I have lots of original news papers and magazines of the period to compare with.
