Lot 3968
Field post cover Front - Home with Field post handstamp and date 03.04.42
The sender was in the unit with the Feldpostnr.: 26711 = Staff Pi.Btl.900
At this time the engineer battalion was subordinated to the 90th le.Inf.Div "Marcks Combat Group" in the Tmimi area.
A so-called "Palm handstamp" was stamped off the front and back of the envelope.
These handstamps actually violated the regulation..... "no indication of the place of use" but this was tolerated by the troops of the Afrika Korps
