German note

Hello all,

Sadly my German is fairly basic, and reading handwriting even less so - If anyone could let me know what these brief notes say (roughly) id be eternally grateful.

Hi Luckens,

Roughly it says:

With best wishes.
I would like to answer to your questions. As pilots we had a state servant status. Those who remained in the state fund received a small pension after retirement.

Unfortunately I stepped out of the fund back then.
According to this overview I am the only one from JG54 who is still alive.
Hopefully you are all well during these Corona times.

Best regards
Armin
