Original Feldpost / sailor's mail from WWII Marine Kleinkampfverband Unterseeboot (K-Verband U-Boot) 5. Marder Flottille, Kampflot 365 / midget submarine (actually a torpedo modified to hold a human) with the Marder 365th Battle Fleet in Skagen, Norway. With contents. The Marder (German for 'martin') were tiny, single occupant 'subs' (converted torpedoes) that could be equipped with a live torpedo slung underneath. If they actually were able to start on their mission, only a handful managed to return. An illustration of the sub is attached at front left. A very rare cover from a German 'Kleinverband' suicide boat.

German WWII-occupied Bohemia Moravia postal card from inmate Nelli Mueller in Prag XI, Schweringasse (Czech: Schwerinova) 1201, Block 1.

Nelli was Jewish who married Czech ethnic German man Bohomil Mueller. For this "crime" Nelli was interned in Hagibor before ultimately being deported to Theresienstadt Concentration Camp, while Bohomil was sentenced to a series of hard labor camps, ultimately ending in Osterode, Harz at an Org Todt subcamp of KL Mittelbau-Dora, working on the mines for the V1/V2 production.

Patriotic postcard produced *by* and for the Czech Legion in Russia during and shortly after WWI. Excellent unused condition, as per scans. The Legion had great success fighting for the Russians at Zborov, but after the Tsar was deposed and the Communists took over they were to be disarmed, a fate to which they took exception. So, like any of us would do, they decided to take over the Trans-Siberian railway and carved their own rolling iron empire out of the former Russia crown's east. The Allies weakly supported them (mostly with words) in fighting the Communists, but ultimately their revolution sputtered to a halt and they evacuated out of (mostly) Valdivostok. Amazing that in the midst of their fighting they had time to actually produce postcards -- I guess there was some significant downtime while rolling across Siberia.
