Letter to the front

Post by Brian B » 19 Dec 2017 06:07

I am a German reenactor and am trying to make a letter from home to improve my impression. Ive already got everything done quite nicely except for addressing the envelope. I have had a very difficult time finding information about it and even the best scans of envelopes I've found are simply to hard to read, and/or addressed to home, not from home.

So here's my question: How would a letter be addressed from Germany, to the front line? Would it be addressed to the nearest field post, if so how would I format that when writing it on the envelope? Thank you for any help and information you can give me :)

It looks exactly as a return address on a post sent to home!
Basically rank or title, first name, surname and feldpost number, if you're after "front line".
If we become increasingly humble about how little we know, we may be more eager to search.
