Coffee on the Western Front?

Can anyone help me read the middle line?

Werner Fehlhaber

1 Mai 1915

Jan. 5, 2021 – Postscript – my cousin Sabine translated it as “Swinemünde.” Wikipedia says that a field artillery battalion was based there.  So it’s really “Coffee on the Baltic Sea.”  More research needed.  There is an old fort there, but he was probably at some training grounds.  Werner’s regiment was Fussartillerie Regiment 20, 1B (1st battalion), which was part of the 45th Reserve Division and which drew from Pommern/Pomerania.  More information on that on p. 464 of “Histories of  two hundred and fifty-one Divisions of the German Army which participated in the war (1914-1918).”
