WW1 1914 German postcard – transcription help needed!

Yesterday whilst visiting a local Antiques Fair in Essex I was looking through a large box of military related postcards on one of the stalls, to see if I could find anything linked to my WW1 research.

Amongst them I found an intriguing postcard of Kaiser Wilhelm dated 1914 with a message and his signature.

I am therefore thinking that this was possibly a morale boosting postcard shared with German Soldiers and wondered if anyone is able to help me transcribe the message to discover more.

Any help greatly appreciated
