WWII Xmas post card finally reaches destination after 71 years
A letter, which had been posted by a soldier in 1941, has finally reached its destination 71 years later.
Engelbert Bergmann received the field post card which was sent to Muehlheim, in Germany's Hesse State, the Daily Mail reported.
The Christmas card was addressed to Bergmann's grandfather from neighbour and German soldier Emil Adam, who was stationed on the Channel Island Jersey.
But the card was taken, along with 85 other items of mail, by a group of young resistance fighters and never made it to its destination until now.
The letter was part of a stack recently handed back by a Jersey man, according to the Leadership website.
It was finally given back to the Jersey post 70 years later through a joint project of Jersey Post, Deutsche Post, the Red Cross and military historians.
According to the newspaper, so far ten recipients have been tracked down and their post finally received.
