1/26/2022 6:07 AM Hi Roger, here the translation of the other side of the postcard. This side is written in another handwriting, I guess from Koko:
right side is the address, left side the following text:

Gestern Freitag war es sehr wenig schön und große Angst, dass es nicht klappen würde. Es kam plötzlich hoher Besuch im Harele(?), aus 16 und Stierle, Herrmann Sten(?), dadurch nichts zu machen! Heute Samstag früh 11 Uhr kam die Erlösung, nun ist es erreicht, die Mutter ist überglücklich. Es war hier ganz gut für die ?, Frau Osser bestätigt es mir. Ich schreibe morgen ausführlich über alles, die letzte Nacht im Dorf Gurs in der Scheune beim Bauern, entsetzlich. Ganz unbestimmt ob und wann wir heute nach Baguères kommen. Wenn möglich behalte das Lexikon, sehr wichtig für uns. Und 100 Küsse vom glücklichen Papa

Yesterday Friday it wasn`t very nice and (I had have) a great fear that it doesn't work. Suddenly important visitor was coming to ?Harele?, from 16 and Stierle, Herrmann ?Sten?, thats why (I) couldn't do anything. Today, Saturday in the morning 11 a clock salvation is coming, now it is done, the mother is overjoyed. It was quiet good here for ?, Miss Osser confirmed this. I write tomorrow detailed about all, the last night in the village gurs in the barn of the farmer, terrible. Completely open is and when we reach Baguères today. If possible keep the dictionary, very important for us. And 100 kisses from your happy daddy
