Default Another photo wearing two wound badges

Hello,
I didn't want to highjack Gran Sasso's other thread showing a soldier wearing two wound badges - http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru...83#post8111483 - so decided I'd better post a new thread. I've had this photo for a long time but the other thread finally spurred me to post it. Sorry I don't have a scanner to get better details, but even looking with a glass or loop doesn't make it any sharper than my photos so I think it doesn't matter. As best I can tell under magnification, the BWB is a 1st pattern while the silver is a normal 39er. I can't read all of the writing, but I know it says he gave it to his grandmother.

Maybe he was just ahead of his time and identified himself as a "she!"

Can you tell me what the rest of the message says? Obviously my "flohmarkt" Deutsch is pretty bad, but throw in the script and I'm totally hopeless.

Thank you! I bought it way back in my early days of collecting at flohmarkts and it took years before I even noticed he had two wound badges.
