Wenn die Heimat ruft (Der Postillion von Reval gab mir Kunde...)

[Topic renamed by the host, Ivan Ž.]

Looking for info on song of the Revaler Postillion, played on the Soldatensender Reval (Tallinn), Estonia. Found some stuff about it on a Finnish website, unfortunately site no longer accessible. I remember hearing it around 1943-44 (I was 10 years old then), lovely melody and sentimental lyrics. Did it really exist or am I recalling a phantom?

The original poster unfortunately hasn't been active for eight years, but maybe someone else will find the info/documents on this song useful:
