Military mail sent by Franz Mack to his parents showing a picture of Montmédy from 13.03.1915:
Received package No 6. Got a Presssack from aunt Stößl. Daughter-in-law-to-be (Frl. Hagel) wrote to me, telling me that she has sent me a package. Tomorrow I will be back in the trenches as every sunday. It makes me blue. Please tell father I hope he gets well soon. In the field everything is cured with Aspirin.
From the german daily war bulletin from 13.03.1915:
“Sporadic encounters in the Champagne area. French attacks were denied causing heavy casualties for the enemy; 200 prisoners were taken.
Fog and snow are derailing fighting in the Vosges Mountains.”
