These two letters were among a group of Feldpost postcards from the First World War and a book dated 1940 called 'Der Wehermacht' that a family member brought back to England after the Second World War in which he fought in France, Holland and Germany. I have never questioned their authenticity. I wonder if the soldier was an old soldier from WW1 who re-joined in a non front line unit as a driver or guard during WW2. I know that a lot of British soldiers did this.
    I purchased a U.S. veteran's WW2 bring back lot once. All German TR items. It also contained postcards from a WW1 German soldier as well as some from WW2. Same soldier. I always wondered why the long spread in years myself.

    The book, does it look like this one? If so it is an annual (yearbook) on of the events of the German forces that have taken place over the past year. I have an older 1936 set of 3 yearbooks for each particular branch, Heer, Kriegsmarine and Luftwaffe.

    Yes, the book is identical! Mine is dated 1940, just after the fall of France and Britain stood alone against the Axis powers. There are some great anti-Churchill cartoons in it :-)

    Do you have any other pictures of the postcard with better lighting? The top right has better lighting than bottom left and the uneven lighting makes it harder to read for people.

    I did get a translation (or transcription more so) for the address though:

    "Herrn Johannes Spannagel
    Neuengraben 17
    Osnabrück"
