Aufklärungsflieger über Afrika

Post by Stravaiger » 28 Aug 2023 11:02

...Aufklärungsflieger über Afrika (Staffellied der 2.(H)/14)...

...I will admit that I had this for quite a while before I realised that the name of Herms Niel was present on it...not a postcard...just a small plain thin card....was it even recorded onto schellack?

Hello again and thanks for sharing this rare card. No known recordings of the piece though.

Cheers,

Es war einmal zur schönen Maienzeit!

..."Es war einmal zur schönen Maienzeit!"...

...there are a number of Herms Niel songcards, printed by 'Wilke & Co.' that appear in 'large' (as this example) and standard size, all colourful...really attractive to look at...

Die ganze Kompanie

..."Die ganze Kompanie"...

...from the same printer, 'Wilke & Co.'.....an example of 'standard size' songcard....the artwork is distinctly different from the larger versions...but equally colourful and pleasing...

Wenn dein Soldat auf Urlaub kommt

1941

Wenn dein Soldat auf Urlaub kommt [Marschlied]
Composer: Prof. Herms Niel
Lyricist: Erich Effler
Publisher: Edition Baltic [Caesar R. Bahar], Berlin, 1941
Opening Line: Als Kavalier zog ich hinaus
Hello everyone!

According to Kaiser, the song was recorded - Musikkorps des Luftgau-Kommandos 11. As far as we know, one version was made for radio. (But this may not be accurate as Kaiser's list is quite erroneous). The first two stanzas were recorded in the radio version.
Wenn dein Soldat auf Urlaub kommt

1. Als Kavalier zog ich hinaus, totschick und ganz auf Draht.
Auf Kammer wurde schnell daraus ein schmucker Feldsoldat!
Auf daß ich mich dir zeigen kann, den Urlaub man erfand
bald ist's so weit, dann bin ich dran, und kehre heim ins Land!

Halli, halli, hallo!

Wenn dein Soldat auf Urlaub kommt, freust du dich dann, mein Kind, mein Kind, mein Kind?
Beweis ihm deine Freude prompt und küsse ihn geschwind, geschwind, geschwind!
Viel schöner ist ein Kuß, der lieb und heiß gegeben ist,
als hundert-tausend, die man schrieb und schnell vergißt.
Wenn dein Soldat auf Urlaub kommt, freust du dich dann, mein Kind, mein Kind, mein Kind?

2. Das Militär, das ist wohl klar, hat mich verändert, Schatz,
jedoch das Herz sitzt, wo es war, und du hast darin Platz!
Kein "Kniebeugt!" und kein "Augen rechts!" die Liebe töten kann.
Denk ich des weiblichen Geschlechts, dann stehst du oben an!

Halli, halli, hallo...

3. Ein Tag beim Militär vergeht so schnell, du glaubst nicht, wie:
zweimal im Bette umgedreht, und es ist morgens früh!
Dann tönen laut vom Korridor Kommandos und manch Fluch.
Na, Schatz, ich mach' dir all das vor, wenn ich dich bald besuch'!

Halli, halli, hallo...

Liebchen, ade!

..."Liebchen, ade!"...

...I like the artwork on this....the artist, H. Schamburger, has quite a distinctive style and is used on many songcards....

I was recently surprised to discover that Niel performed in my home town as well, which was at the time annexed by Hungary. It was part of his Hungarian tour in September 1942 (see also the Budapest post). According to the press report, Herms Niel and his band gave two extraordinarily successful concerts in Novi Sad, in overcrowded venues.

Marcia contro l'Inghilterra

Post by heinrich-pg » 08 Dec 2023 16:51

The score of the Italian edition of "Wir fahren gegen Engelland"
Beltramo Editions - Sanremo 1940
Italian text by C. Malberto (evident pseudonym of the publisher)
During the R.S.I. the text was slightly modified starting with the title "Cara mamma sono volontario" (Dear mother I'm a volunteer)
Currently the text, de-fascistized, is in use in special departments of the Italian Armed Forces such as the Paratroopers of the "Folgore" and the Marine Infantrymen of the "San Marco"
Original copy in the Lorien Archive and digital copy in my collection
