I'd say the first word is "Danzig", then it looks like "Ospriesen Resident" presumably followed by "Germany".
How does that sound?

Prue  :)

Changed my mind after Googling  ;D
Second word is probably "Ostpreussen" i.e. East Prussia.  
Danzig is the German word for Gdansk which is now in Poland (at least some of which used to be the German province of East Prussia, I believe).

Excellent!  :D  I love it when family rumour turns out to be true (doesn't happen very often in my family  ::)  ;D  )
