DISPLAY: Souvenir postcards, 1914–18
Blind-embossed card, with silk embroidery on toile
These postcards were made in France and sold to troops stationed there during the First World War. They were cheaper to post than letters, and soldiers from both sides sent them home to their loved ones. These examples were sent by Sapper Jack Coles to his wife Maud and their little son Frankie. The cards were donated by S.W. Coles.
