I like 31/2;

probably the landlord and her daughter in whose chateau the officers lived. I read a lot of stories that the officers who confiscated the chateau asked the landlords to participate in the off duty time to include dinner etc. This picture shows the polite "integrated separation" of occupants and landlords

Could be Marburg. but this is in the heart of Germany; i'd rather want to believe this photo was from the etappe next to the front in

France or Belgium

I agree with Marina - it's Marburg. The format of this photograph and the composition are different to everything else in the album suggesting this was sent to the owner of the album. There is the possibility that this may have been taken on leave (by someone else) and the owner of the album may be one of the subjects.

Marina, Graham - I think that you are probably correct saying Marburg.

You are right Graham, in that the composition is different to anything else in the album except A1 P10 P3 which is the same type of layout ie the picture is offset to the left of the photopaper. It is also the only picture that I can see that has been folded.

The place of the photo is in Belgium or France. "Hôtel de Ville", "SECRETARIAT" and "ESTAMINET CREPIN" are to read.

Firstly I am looking for churches in PAS DE CALAIS now. I hope that this site would lead to the place:

Who likes to help by doing the search ?

Phantastic, Geoff !

I was just starting search on section "H" when your reply came.

So we have found the place. For comparison:

Sorry Malte, misunderstood what you meant. I should not have been surprised that you had the information and photos already posted. Is there anywhere that you dont have photos of? :)

How could you post that photo in October last year?

What should we think?

Mystified

Geoff

The search helped me to new aspects to my topic. After having finished task at your's I re-arranged my topic and actualized it. My "mistake" was not to have deleted all the posts before starting it new. So your photo went to a space which another pic had occupied before. It is possible and very easy to change that.

Malte

PS: I am very happy now because I had that Hénin-Beaumont-, Hénin-Liétard-Problem too. Now I am much wiser
