Kolonialkriegerdank, Wartime Colonial Society

Post by JLEES » 14 Aug 2009 13:55

I purchased this postcard about one year ago and originally though it was from a series of postcards by Willy Stömer promoting the fighting solidarity of the German Armed forces. Because it has a similar artist depiction as something he had done in 1915 for the Kolonialkriegerdank, a wartime colonial society with its main headquarters on Berlin’s Potsdamerstrasse, promoting the idea that German troops were also fighting valiantly in Africa against Allied troops. However, when I received the item Stömer’s name does not appear anywhere on the card and it was published for the same organization by F. Bruckmann A.G. of Munich. Its original owner mailed it on October 1, 1915.

In an attempt to acquire greater understanding of the card I was hoping someone could please translate the rear side text for me into English?

Does anyone also know anything about the Kolonialkriegerdank?
