Well thank you so much for the translation. I'm sorry you had to spend so long trying to discern the signature. I've looked at it some time now, and the letters could be so many varieties. Based on your Parnovič idea, I wonder if it might be his surname, which is Pleskač. If that's possible the closing might still be "otec".  But then who would be writing the other letters, could it be the mother, I wonder.

I also considered that the family ran a shop business, and all the letters are just stamped with "Konrad Pleskac obchod koloniál Nova Ves", so I wondered if he's just sending letters to a brother named Konrad who runs the business.   But the letters never mention another person named Konrad.  And there's a military assurance form which would pay Konrad money in case of Bohus' death, that would usually go to the parents, not a brother.

Whatever it may be, it's much appreciated.   So far I have some names at least, even though I haven't got a clear family tree to affix photos to.   Everything takes time I suppose.

Re letter 4, I've sent the blurred scan to a relative in Prague asking for help, but I'm not sure I'll get a response.  It's a complex situation.
