I need help translating the German if anyone can assist!

Original Luger 1915. The story goes... A german soldier received this from his father, and the father had it engraved for the son to go to WWI... The at the end of the war the soldier was injured and in a US MASH camp. This is where my great great uncle was a DR. The soldier gave the pistol to my great great uncle for saving his life. He said if he could not take it back as it would be destroyed because they had lost the war. He was then was allowed to bring it back home without the magazine. Later one my great great uncle's patients in the US was able to obtain a magazine for the gun sometime in the 1930s. It was passed down to my great aunt upon his passing, and she just passed it down to me.

Pretty cool piece!

You might be able to Google the words and then have then translated to English.

I think it says: "if this pistol is found, please send it to Mike Innis in Mason, TX, right away for safe keeping." You can PM me for an address. Great pistol and a wonderful story! Since I'm in the heart of German Country here in CenTex, I'll see if I can get a translation for you.

P.K.K.A is the Workers and Peasants Red Army so it would have been after 1917.

I had trouble with that last word on the left grip. On the day of your X (10th) anniversary.

Thanks for the info guys... Upon research I found several holes in the story my mom told me (that she said my great aunt told her) - so I went straight to my great aunt with the research that I found.

NOT GERMAN BUT RUSSIAN>>>>


Actually talking with my great aunt here is what I have pieced together.. And where we stand.

Her father was a DR in the US 7th ARMY in WWII

*** In a lead role in Operation Undertone, the Seventh Army fought its way across the Rhine into Germany, captured Nuremberg and then Munich. Finally it crossed the Brenner Pass and made contact with Lieutenant General Lucian Truscott's U.S. Fifth Army at Vipiteno[4] - once again on Italian soil.

In less than nine months of continuous fighting, the Seventh Army had advanced over 1,000 miles and for varying times had commanded 24 U.S. and Allied divisions, including the 3rd, 36th, 42nd, 44th, 45th, 63rd, 70th, 100th, and 103rd Infantry Divisions. ***

Sometime in the final months of the war he encountered a Russian officer at a MASH camp where he served. My Great Aunt states that her father said he treated an officer (she always assumed it was a German Officer), the officer gifted the pistol to him. (the story has changed to the officer was a patient and the officer was a fellow DR. - so I am not sure which one) He was not allowed to bring it back with the magazine. Later in his like (40s - 50s) one of his US patients heard the story and was able to obtain an authentic magazine, which completed the pistol.

Only thing I could find on a Tarasov MM was the following link to some medical articles written in Moscow in the 1960s (which would help support the vbersion where he was a fellow Dr.)
