These are also, most of them, in hospital uniforms. I seem to recognice some of the faces from the picture of company 10/234 of the 51st reserve division I posted earlier. Do anyone agree these may be the same ones?

It is dated Lemberg the 29th of june 1916. It says: Memento of ????? 57 ???? Arthur Reschke

This one's badly faded, sadly, but I'm posting it because of the reverse...

Posted - 04/27/2006 : 12:59:55 PM Hello again Bayonetcollector!
I think the Lazarett on the reverse of your faded photo was in the birthtown of my mother!
I read fluently gothic german when it is printed and agree with The Expert that, when it is written by hand, you are sometimes far from home!
The three lines touched by the stamp (adress of the man who did send it to his parents)are read by me as follows, abbreviations are in full:
Absender: Unteroffizier Heu?er Traütmann
Kriegslazarett "Sint-Truiden" (the parentheses are present)
Abteilung: Fachschule, ???bro 49 ("bro" abbrev. of "büro"???)

I am not 100 percent sure of the 3rd line and the christian name is not familiar to me(it certainly is not "Fritz"
). Sint-Truiden is a small medieval Flemish town, and lies just in the middle between Brussels (Belgium) and Aachen (Germany).
What puzzles me a bit are the two last words of the message to his parents (after "Lazarett") even after a priceless Triple of Westmalle beer my third braincell couldn't figure it out.
