Hello the forum

Please help me translate this postcard.

I am at present bidding on this postcard on Delcampe.net

Unsure of the language. All help appreciated.

 

The postcard image is from the Pont Rouge, Warneton, Deulemont, and the 'Red Bridge' spans the river Lys

Thanks Wendy

Ohh no, he must have been shot or had an accident with his hand.

It's almost a bit funny, but very serious if nearly killed.

 

Thank you for translating for me I really appreciate your help GreyC

 

Regards Wendy
