Hello,

I have scanned the front of this postal card and have puzzled over the destination for a bit. Can anyone solve this? Was the postal card sent to a German location?

Note the message above the Hitler Youth bugler: for Manfred's collection.

Thank you Charlie--that is helpful: Can you tell me what that town is? I cannot make it out at all. I assume (oh-oh) that Land is short for Deutschland?

The town is Pegau. Here is a Wikipedia link to a description and map:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pegau

and here is a link to a description of the German script of that period:

Thank you, Roy! It's incredible how, once identified, the scrawl becomes legible!

It's not 100% Sütterlin, which makes it difficult to decipher this handwriting.
The bottom line is clear: Pegau - Land, but I cannot really make out what's written above. Gros. Storkziß or Storkriß?
