SMGM-3604 Otto Ude Knights Cross Winner signatures W/note from wife to Emilie Caldwell Stewart


1 in stock

A 4×6″ photo with post war signature in white marker. As a bonus, it includes the envelope and lengthy note dated 1990 sent to Emilie Caldwell Stewart, a well known paper work expert and author. It’s possible this was in her personal collection at one point. The note and envelope is signed and addressed several times by “Hildegard Ude” which I’m assuming is his wife.
