    A nice U.S War stamp used for airmail The stamp itself is very common. What's interesting here is the cancelation that was used by the Army while it was stationed in Europe. You can clearly read the text. :)

    I actually posted these issues a few days ago. there are 12 stamps.

    They are: Nachrichten, Schnellboot, Panzers, FallschirmJäger, Stuka, Waffen SS , Flak, Grenadiere, Pioneer, Zug Abwehr, kradfahrer and U-Boote.

    I picked them out because of the details of the engravings. They almost look like pictures.

    Oh I see ! I didn't get it . You are talking about the Felpostletter .:p

    Sturmkreuz this is excellent news!

    Ididn't know this soldier was a Luftwaffe Gefreiter.

    Do you know I have a huge archive of this man . The first one has 60 letters dating from 1942 to 44 . I have started posting them for St Valentine's Day because they are mostly love letters from this Gefreiter to his French Fiancée.

    You will find them in the Militaria section and the title is Romeo and Juliette (I started this yesterday)

    I should get 320 more documents form him next week. Thanks a lot for your help.

    some more great documents from 1942 and 1943: These are business orders from printers in Berlin (under) and another one based in Metz , Lorraine (above) . Both documents are adressed to a company in DIEDENHOFEN WESTMARK which was the official occupation name of THIONVILLE LORRAINE. The documents mentions that on eitem is not in stock and the printer suges treplacecing it with another one.
    Check how most orders were signed at the end.

    French field post correspondence from the phoney war (dated Feb 1940). Note the handwritten F.M (military mail) stamp and the POSTES AUX ARMEES cancellation :)
