Thinking of a loved one.



This is another postcard to Miss Winnie Mann, this time from Jack sent on 19 June 1916. Although some would argue that the image is rather kitsch, I think there’s something quite appealing about it and I couldn’t resist posting it!

Love’s Service

I rather love this First World War Valentine’s Postcard imitating a Field Service Postcard which soldiers on active service would use to send speedy messages home without any need for censoring by their officers.

The back contains a message to a Miss Winnie Mann “with best love from Billie xx” and it is postmarked 30 January 1919, in plenty of time for Valentine’s Day.

What a handsome chap!

In the run up to Remembrance Day – I found an image of this rather striking member of the Royal Flying Corps in my stash of postcards.
