    Der Inhalt des Briefes lautet wie folgt:

Nauplion, 7.5.41

Lieber Vater- Liebe Tante, Lieber Onkel!
Endlich komme ich dazu, um an Euch zu schreiben.
Ihr habt ja sicher aus den Nacchrichten gehört, dass wir eingesetzt worden sind am Kanal von Korinth.
Es hat alles geflutscht, der Tommy hat seine Jacke vollgehauen bekommen und jetzt liegeen wir in Ruhe in Privatquartieren südlich von Korinth - Nauplion heißt die Stadt.
Sie liegt direkt am Meer. Schön ist es hier. Das Landd wo die Zitronen blühen. Besonders schön ist das Meer selbst. Seine Farbe ist tiefblau allerdings ziemlich salzig ist es auch. Man muss sich beim Baden erst daaran gewöhnen.
Sonst geht es mir gut. Die Fahrt nach hier war wunderbar. Wir kamen durch das Protektorat (Anmerkung: jetzt Tschechien) -Wien-Budapest- Bukarest-Philippope (Anmerkung: alter Name von Plowdiw in Bulgarien) nach Larissa in Griechenland und von dort nach Korinth zum Einsatz.
Näheres auf meinem Urlaub. Wann der Urlaub fällig ist, weiß ich noch nicht.Vorher wird hier unten wohl noch etwas fällig sein. Meinen Geburtstag werde ich wohl in Griechenland feieern. Auch gut.
Euch würde es bestimmt auch gut hier unten gefallen. Die Sonne brennt hier anständig. Da kommen unsere heißen Sommertage nicht mit. Zitronen gibts in Hülle und Fülle. Schöne Rosen haben wir schon.

Nun Herzliche Grüße
Euer Karling.

In Athen war ich auch zurr Parade.
Wahrscheinlich gibt es die jetzt in den Wochenschauen bei Euch. (Ende des Briefes)

Note from Andreas Unmack".
Zum Verständnis: Karl war kein Nazi aber Fallschirmjäger mit Leib und Seele.
Da ich glaube,dass dies auch Ihre Intention ist, stelle ich Ihnen in Gedenken an Karl den Brief als Zeitdokument zur Verfügung.

Bitte benennen Sie im Copyright die Kollektion als "Kollektion Karl Unmack".

The contents of the letter reads as follows:

Nauplion, 7.5.41

Dear Father - Dear Aunt, dear uncle!

Finally I get to write to you.
Ye have certainly heard from the news, that we have been employed at the Corinth Canal.
Everything went smoothly, Tommy got fully carved his jacket, and now we lie south of Corinth at rest in private homes - Nauplion is the name of the city.
It is located right by the sea. It is beautiful here. The land where the lemon trees bloom. Particularly beautiful is the sea itself. Its color is deep blue but it is also quite salty.
You have to get used to it when bathing. Otherwise I'm fine. The trip to here was wonderful. We passed through the Protectorate (Note: now the Czech Republic) -Vienna-Budapest-Bucharest-Philippopel (Note: old name of Plowdiw in Bulgaria) by Larissa in Greece and from there to Corinth to deployment.
For details in my vacation. When the holiday is due, I do not know yet. Previously will probably still be some due down here. I will probably celebrate my birthday in Greece. Also good.
You would certainly like it well below here. The sun burns decent here. Here come our hot summer days not with. Lemons are in abundance. Beautiful roses we already have.

Well Kind regards,
Your Karling.

In Athens I was also on parade.
There are probably now in the newsreels with you. (End of letter)

Note from Andreas Unmack".
To clarify:
Karl was not a Nazi but paratrooper in body and soul.
Since I believe that this is your intention, I present to you in memory of Karl, the letter as a historical document.
Please rename the copyright collection as "collection Karl Unmack".
