    Agree, and the first three words are "Park in Brest". Correct!

    The middle pic (November 1941), third line starts with "Mein Kubel"? Is there a Kubelwagen there in the photo?

      Indeed, there's a Kübel also seen. Could it say, "Mein Kübel, dahinter .. Pz. (?) ... "

        The trouble is that initial letters in both words "Kübel" and, presumably, "Pz." were written in a very similar way...

        The same issue with "Febr. 1941" photo, - if the 2nd name is "Holm", then the first name should start with "H" too...
        Does the pic refer to February 1941? Is it in Poland? Holm is quite a popular name for locations, for it means "a hill". There are a lot of places named "Holm" around Smolensk, for instance. But, what about the date then?

          Since it shows a Panzer IV in white camo and lots of snow around, it should be 1942. Since I cannot decypher the place names and since the unit was divided in several Kampfgruppe (and I am stil uncertain to whom it belonged so there's still a little doubt) I cannot cross reference since so many village places are mentioned within reports (and I cannot read what is written on the reverse so I have no clue where to start). Maybe these help?

            Well, this is something to start with!

                Could the previous reverse (with Holm) read actually Krasnyj-Cholm (?) (or something similar like Krasny, because as you know - Russian / German spelling (written as spoken, written as it should be ..) something changes the spelling.

                On the newly posted reverses, I may read 3.12.41 (???) 22 km vor Moskau (??) and the other one Febr 42, Losmino / Lusmina ..... (??)

                  Krasny Holm... Well, why not. It was liberated by the 17-th Infantry Division of the Red Army on the 04.02.1942 (see the scan).


                  9 Krasny Holm 03.02.1942.jpg


                  As to "Losmina", I believe it could be Lossmino (the Russian spelling is with mild singular [s'] - Лосьмино) by Wjasma (German spelling). Krassnyj Cholm is there too.

                    One more option is that "Krasny" and "Holm" are two separate locations not far from each other. Smolenskaya region has got one "Krasny" and two separate places named "Holm".
                    The only way to avoid confusion is to compare known locations given in war diaries of a particular unit and dates/scenes on photos.

                      Czech translation help needed

                      Hello gents

                      Anyone could help with the translation of the entries in the following pictures please?

                      The top entry of the first picture
                      The "Vereinigung" entry of the second picture (think that one means something "financial")
                      The single words in the boxes. (Suspect some of them will mean none or nothing or non-existent or such)

                      Thank you kindly for the help!
                      cheers

                        To begin with, the languages used are German and Czech.
                        After [Vereinigung] goes [peněžník.], that is a financier. So, all in all there should be a kind of financial union.
                        Then, the words in boxes are Czech too, I believe.
                        [žádné] and [žádný] mean "none"/"not any"; [nevyučen] - "not educated/ not learned"; [všechny] - "all".
                        As to the handwritten text in Czech, I can only read first words. Look at the scan attached, please.
                        Let those who speak Czech correct my version.
