Reader Hassan translates: “Second to last car from Berlin… Captain Sigvard Drake of the P-4 (armoured) regiment, Skövde, narrates an exciting trip home from Berlin in his Ford Eifel Cabriolet in the letter below. (letter absent -Ed)  The picture is taken outside of Hedberg’s (Ford Dealership) in Malmö”     Thank you Hassan.
