H011263 OBERLEUTNANT'S 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, 5 1/4" x 3 3/8" mid-weight cardstock postcard features a close-up, portrait style, black and white photograph of an Oberleutnant wearing an M35 Dress tunic and visor cap. The visible uniform details include the cap insignia, collar tabs and collar piping, shoulder boards, a breast eagle and the front closure piping. The reverse of the postcard has some black paper and glue remnants where it had been inserted in a photo album. The unused postcard shows light age yellowing.
