The backs of both are identical.

 

I'd love to see some of yours!

Wonderful cards, 45govt! You got the big guns!

 

There is real artistry in his photographs.

 

I didn't know where to put these either. Figured they were wearing uniforms so put them here.

“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
"How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.
"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.”

Willi Sanke was a German photographer who produced a series of postcards mostly featuring German aces and flying heroes during WWI. The high quality, and the subjects of his cards made them popular collectables from the time they were first issued right up to today.

Hello

I scanned the rest of my Sanke cards and have posted below

The names are on the cards, most of these have the PLM for a certain number of enemy shot down.

 

Note the photo of Richthofen with the autograph is a copy, believe me I could not afford an original :(

 

The very bottom is two photos of British pilots the photos or cards are about the size of cigarette cards so I do not know if they are actually period photos or??
