Not sure what kind of trip it was and Saint looks misspelled, but it's the only Malo I heard of.

Dimitrii,

It probably shows something about the Kriegsmarine.

Left corner: .....suchboot

Von Rotterdam-bis Sainy Malo (Agree with Greg, should be Saint Malo)

Die Kamelfahrt

???? rechts unten in der Mitte als zweiter Matrose.

Best regards

adding the word "stehe" before "???? rechts unten in der Mitte als zweiter Matrose."
could read "ich stehe rechts unten....."
