Švenčionys 1916

A postcard sent in 1916 from the feldpost station of the 115th infantry division in Swientziany, now Švenčionys, Lithuania. Švenčionys can be spelled in many different ways depending on the languages or circonstances, Swientziany or Swenzian in German, Święciany in Polish.

The last 3 cards were sent from an unknow feldpost station, probably private posts. The last card is actually not Napoleon's house as its decribed on the postcard but the place where Napoleon spent a night on the way to the Russian campain in 1812.
