Reproduction of a blank letter used during World War II by Wehrmacht soldiers as well as envelopes used by the population. Mail was the only way to keep in touch from home.
Envelopes with a stamp
If you choose to stamp envelopes, please write me in the note with which stamp (date) you want to stamp the envelope / envelopes.
Use / purpose:
The text was written in a letter, then folded and pasted. Then the address was written on the envelope.
A simple and fast way to get the mail from:
- If there is a blank date stamp or "feldpost" stamp on the envelope and the unit stamp is mail from the soldier to the home.
- If there is a date stamp with the name of the post office on the envelope or a blank date stamp + the city stamp, it is mail from the family towards the soldier.
(This is just a basic system for recognizing mail. Therefore, it should not be taken as a rule. For example: not all soldiers used unit stamps to write their front number on the envelope.)
