Kati Andai's father Lajos Erdos as soldier-postman during WWI

My father as a traveling postman during WWI. He is the figure in the back of the car. During the war, my father was a traveling postman. This is what they called those who came and went by train - and he settled for a long time in Marosvasarhely [today: Tirgu Mures, Romania]. And he had an official residence. There was a refreshment room, where they gathered, with a few Hungarian military officers, and they used to eat and drink there in the evenings. My mother used to cook and bake, if there were any ingredients for it. She never went to work. There was no need to. She always found something to read, and so she read. I was almost born there. In the end I was born in Kassa in '18. There was war and lack of food, so my mother went home to give birth at her parents' place.
