    Nagyvarad 1940 dated, there are certainly native magyars in Romania, that could help You with translation.

    Hello,

    In it, a disabled corporal soldier of the 1st Hungarian World War describes his 781 days of service, when and where he served, on the second page the time of his promotions, when he received a 3rd class gallantry medal and that he was promised a gold gallantry medal, which he did not receive until the time of writing the letter.

    If you need to be more specific, I can help.
    I hope I could help. Peeloo

    Thank you very very much for your reply
    I was extremely curious what was written in the document as I am neither able to read or understand hungarian nor have someone to help me with the translation. I had an aunt of hungarian descent with the same family name - Nagy - but she unfortunately passed away few years ago and thus I was in the dark with the document. I want to put the document and the medals in a frame and I was curious about the soldier s whereabouts.
    Thank you again
    All the best

    Hello
    The text of the postcard: my dear parents, I could speak a lot by the time I got home, but my tongue doesn't work. I received it today, but I'm sure they didn't do it right. Imre

    What could mean " I received it today bit I am sure they didn't do it right"? Is he refering to his tongue affected by the head wound?

    Hello, Unfortunately, the system has not allowed you to send messages so far... It said "I received it today", it is not clear from the context of the text what it could have been written about, perhaps it could have been the hospital paper about the discharge.
    Regards, Peeloo
