    Hi guys,

    this interesting set came in today. Found it on German eBay and decided to get it with the few spare euros I had

    The opened envelope contained a letter and a photo sent by a soldier to his darling in May 1942. The fellow served with 2. Kompanie, Infanterie-Divisions-Nachrichten-Abteilung 230, 169. Infanterie-Division. This particular unit was stationed in northern Finland from the start of Barbarossa until late 1944 when it withdrew to Norway.

    I have attached photos of the entire letter below in case some Sütterlin expert is kind enough to decipher some of the text - I can mostly spot just individual words myself.

    This is in fact my first Feldpost "grouping" and also such a nice one I'm planning on framing it.

    Thanks for looking!

    Nice small photo - a bit dirty and out of focus but an interesting piece anyway.

    Great find.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Excellent pick up

    I enjoy collecting Feldpost groupings too, for exactly that reason

    Thanks for the comments gents!

    I'm certainly looking forward to adding some more of these to my humble collection as they seem to be very affordable (and great material for further research as well)
