Sütterlin to decypher

Hi all,

attached is some writing in Sütterlin. It's from a II./KG54 picture taken in Russia.

This is what I can make out:
"100 Feindflug ??? Staffelkapitäin in ????"

The last word might be Orscha, but I'm not sure.

Can anybody help me to fill in the missing words?

Thanks in advance,
Rudi.

My guess is that it is a name. I think it could be zu Oerffen, or Oerffes????

This might help you to decipher Sutterlin - trial & error is involved in that you type the letters and see if they or the word matches but it is a handy tool...

Re: Sütterlin to decypher

After applying "auto levels"in Photoshop, it looks better but I can't be sure what it says.

Any chance that the first line is "vom Feindflug Nr. 6"?
And the last could be "in ... [somewhere]" I'd like to say it's Orscha but I don't think there's enough letters there.

Re: Sütterlin to decypher

There is enough letters... Writer wrote "open A" so it could seem like two letters which are in fact one. By te way it is realy interesting mix of both Sütterlin (Kurent) and Latin Letters.

Re: Sütterlin to decypher

Yes,

"Feindflug ... im Osten"

The middle lline could be something like "Waffen...", but this is only a guess.

Thanks everyone for your time & effort trying to resolve this one. It's very much appreciated.

And here is the picture, Rémi. Not a very spectacular one I'm afraid.

Regards,
Rudi.
