On this horizontal view of the postcard I am interested to know what comes after Linz on the next to last line, right side, and what it says at the very top right side. Apparently Baner or Boner is repeated but I can't read the other stuff.
It appears that this was sent by my grandfsther, Isak Moses Knisbacher (for whom I am named) to his brother Hermann who went by his mother's maternal name of Banner/Bonner (which is it?), who was serving in the Austrian army in Linz before and during WWI. The card and an accompanying note were sent me over 15 years ago by Hermann's daughter Dina, since deceased. She referred to my grandfather as Issac Bonner/Banner (agin, unclear which, even in her note.)
This appears to have two cancellations, the first outgoing from Berlin, the second incoming to Linz. Since there is no postage stamp attached, it suggests to me that my grandfather was also in the army at the time (the German army), Germany and Austria-Hungary being allies.
