GERMANY – POSTCARD / SANKE CARD – HAUPTMANN OSWALD BOELCKE – GUSTAV LIERSCH – NR 7721
This is a Gustav Liersch postcard Nr 7721, which is a version of a Sanke card. As a matter of fact at the bottom of the postcard it has the Liersch information at the left and the Sanke information at the right.
The pose of Boelcke is classic as he has his right hand on his hip. In the button hole of his tunic he has the ribbon for the 1914 Iron Cross 2nd Class and for the Knights Cross with Swords of the Hohenzollern House Order. On his left breast he has the 1914 Iron Cross 1st Class and the Prussian Army Pilot badge. At his throat he wears the coveted Orden Pour le Mérite.
The card is in very fine condition and has never been mailed.
