LM Prussian Soldier


1900?  Full-color postcard of LM showing a Prussian (?) soldier helping a dwarf-size person.  "On a souvent besoin d'un plus petit que soi."  $8 from Bertrand Cocq, Calonne Ricouart, France, Sept., '18. 

As far as I can tell, the military uniform shown here goes back to about 1870.  Is this a bit of propaganda that the German officers are appreciative of French "little people"?  The postcard is unusually well colored.  This is an unusual find.  Well done, Bertrand!
