Hi Igor,

Well, signatures. My first guess would be: Frackmann.

Best regards

Thanks. Will see if it helps to identify the person. This guy was writing to his wife in 1915, so I would assume his name was also Eichholz. But I do not find any German officer (except of a doctor) with that name during WWI.

Please help. It is explanation for a map (Erklärung). I can recognize only Q letter and some other letters but unable to figure out what it means. It is Old German.

Hi Igorak,

I read:

Q Zügel Öffen, alwo sie auch den Horizont zu Ziegler tief abschalen.
I hope this makes sense to you, because it doesn´t make much sense to me.

Best regards
Armin
