Prussia – Postcard – Prinz August Wilhelm – Autographed

Prinz August Wilhelm (1887-1949) was the fourth son of Kaiser Wilhelm II (1859-1941). He did not lead a military existence although he is seen here in a M-1915 Feldbluse for the 1. Garde-Regiment zu Fuß. On this tunic the only decoration that we see is a breast star.

After the war he became associated with the Nazi party and was made a high ranking oficer of the SA. He ran into problems in 1942 when he made unwise remarks about Joseph Goebbels. He was then shunned and excluded from party activities and was under close observation until the fall of the Third Reich.

This autographed postcard dated “1920″ is signed by Prinz August Wilhelm. On the reverse there is a brief message in pencil and has been mailed to Paul Baer.
