RIR 219 was part of the 47th Reserve Division 1914-18.As such it took part in the following campaigns in WW1:

1914
Woevre Front France October.
Sent East in November.
Tarnow.

1915
Tarnow,Galicia.
Poland.
Lipsk.

1916
Lipsk-Baranovitchi sector.

1917
Transfered to West May 1917.
Aisne front.

1918
March Somme Offensive.
Marne battle.

The division was dissolved in June 1918.

German postcards could be easily sourced by Allied troops obtaining their kit--either via a POW or a dead soldier.
