eBay pictures. Help needed to read pictures' back.

Hi Gents,


These new photos of "Weisse 8", former EJGr. Merseburg machine. Holland, December 1940.
What's written on back "Bei ??? "
For 12 1941 or Dezember 1940 no need translation. Many thanks.
Note, though, it's the same machine but on one back it is indicated 1940 and 1941 on the other
Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks John for the try.
Recently we have had a little conversation concerning this machine but the name given today doesn't match exactly with what we got here:

Franck,


Perhaps this might help:





I think the capital letter is 'Q'(u) from this list of sutterlin script letters.


Hope this helps.

JOHN,

I do have a couple of pictures to decipher yet, and your post here (above) was of immense VALUE. My gratitude for that...most of us non-German speakers or natives do have a tremendous difficulty in deciphering what is sometimes written on old WW2 photographs. Therefore your help is valuable to a number of us.

Again, my gratitude and thanks for sharing

Adriano
