My cousin the „Jungpionier“

Although my cousin, born in March 1983, so the same year as I, just 8 months before, she was the only one of us two that actually became a real "Jungpionier", because she started school in 1989. Image
I on the other hand was denied this "award". Unbelievable! She also had the pleasure of eight weeks of summer vacation, at least once in her life.
I had my first day of school in August 1990, a few weeks before the German reunification.
So by then, the fall of the Berlin Wall was less than a year ago and I proudly displayed my white dress with its purple silk bow and uncomfortable patent leather shoes at the „Einschulung“ (first day of school).

Was going through some of my Grandad's old things. Found this little card given to him or one of his friends by a French 'girl' in Tunisia in 1943. "to Dixxy, one of the first English soldiers I have seen here. I have time to do something better. I hope you will be pleased
with that. I thank you again for all the things you gave us. I will think of you during the coming Europe campaign. I wish you'll go back home soon - after the Great Victory - a French Girl - Claude de Sonia - May 1943, Saia (Major?) Tunisia. *drawing of crossed fingers*
For context, my Welsh grandfather was in the 132 Welsh Field Regiment Royal Artillery who fought through North Africa and Italy. I don't know who Claude was or the context of this meeting, which somehow makes this a more moving piece of #socialhistory #WWII
