GROUP PORTRAIT OF ARMED SOLDIERS POSING WITH TWO MORTARS AND THEIR MASCOT DOG

ORRUZON

ORRUZON 1

This vintage real photo portrait postcard is a nice piece of military history. I wish I knew more about this group of soldiers and their weapons. The men are armed and look dangerous. Note the two mortars. A soldier in the bottom row is holding a flag. A small dog is sitting in front of the men. He is likely the unit’s mascot. The message on the reverse of the postcard probably reveals some of the story behind this image. Unfortunately, I am unable to provide a translation. However, the writing on the reverse of the postcard informs us that the photograph was taken in 1926, a year that lies between the World War I and World War II. This vintage postcard is in very good condition.

  1. Could you enlarge the verso of the card? Thank you.

    • I imagine that you want to see the enlargement of the verso so you can translate it. Fortunately, “mousetailpress” translated the message in the comment above yours. Thanks for your interest in the blog.

  2. Translation
    Souvenir-photo of the North African campaign (in isolated place) taken on May 2, 1926 in Ouezzan (Morocco) 4 months before the end of the military service. Eugène.

    • Thanks for the translation which enhances what is already an interesting image. I appreciate your involvement in the blog.
