H010463 OFFICER GROUP PHOTOGRAPH POSTCARD. (Photographie Postkarte)
BACKGROUND: Basic human instinct dictates that soldiers in the field, regardless of nationality, long for their loved ones at home. As a result it was very common for these soldiers to purchase, or appropriate, "sweetheart" items and send them home. Although there was almost an unlimited selection of "sweetheart" items one of the most popular items were the photograph postcards which were relatively inexpensive, easily mailed and distinctly personal. As today, there were also numerous other reasons to pose for a photograph, new appointments, promotions, weddings anniversaries etc., etc.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Roughly, 3 5/8" x 5 1/4" mid-weight cardstock postcard with a black and white photograph of a group of eight army officers, one army NCO and two Luftwaffe officers wearing uniforms and visor caps. The visible uniform details include the cap insignia, shoulder boards and collar tabs, breast eagles, ribbon bars and awards and both Army and Luftwaffe officer’s daggers. The unused postcard shows light age yellowing.
