Green envelope, includes white and red postage stamp of eagle and two snakes, writing in pencil
Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: The inscription reads “Remember the 9th of November 1923.” The eagle, representing Germany, is doing battle with the three major co-signatories- Great Britain, France, and the United States- of the Versailles Treaty in June 1919. The tide had clearly turned against Germany by the end of 1944. To manage shortage of manpower, Hitler had ordered the creation of the Volkssturm in October: all males between 16 and 60 years of age were required to participate in the war effort.
