Thought this was a permit first but appears to be a reciept for stuff sent home from field post office. From Rhade to Bremen. Probably loot.

    It´s a reciept but for money. Seems that PFC (Obergefreiter) Lühden has sent home 200 Reichsmark to a relative, a farmer. That was the time before creditcards

    Ah super wondered what it was. Some of the pics have writing on the back, I speak a little German but could not understand a word. I sent it to some Germans on myspace. They told me it was Sutterlin - old German. I got an old woman to translate most of it for me.

    I wrote to the German Military records office in Berlin asking where the field post office was. They did not say, but told me that the person survived the war and died in 1996.
