Here’s a recent addition to my postcard collection which is, conveniently enough, festive. This time we are going over ‘the other side of the wire’ with a German postcard.
I can’t say much more than these cheery chaps are German soldiers in the Balkans. I bought a small collection of cards related to Prussian Feldartillerie Regiment Nr 201 who were in the Vardar Valley for some of 1916, before moving to Rumania. There is no indication of the year depicted. The young chap at bottom left with a moustache is certainly from FAR Nr 201, but I wonder if the other men, in darker uniforms, are Schützen (Rifles). I’m sure someone out there can put me right. What is certain is that you will be seeing more of FAR Nr 201 in 2019, along with their Bulgarian allies.
