Found: Tübingen, Germany
Language: German
Text: I tried the birthday cake. I have to say that it was wonderful and I have never tasted anything like it. I wasn’t drunk so I split it in two. I still haven’t received packet #2. Have you received my letter from the 27th and the envelope with postcards from Paris and Prague yet? I am not sure if my mail is being answered. I am sending you my heartfelt greetings. Your boy.
Note: I couldn’t quite read all the handwriting on this card. But it was apparently the young soldiers birthday. It also sounds like he is not sure if his letters are being answered. It must have been a lonely birthday in western France.
I am not a native German speaker, so if you have a better translation, let me know.
