Continuing my love of the messages on postcards as much as the images, here are a few of the best from my new haul.
This is one of my favourite postcards ever, it’s just so beautiful. I know enough German to think that the verse is probably written in a slightly archaic version of the language, just like the English language has changed over time.
Being slightly obsessed as I am with the war, this postcard hurts me. One of the lines reads “We have had it quieter here lately, no shells or bombs, and I hope the war is soon over so we can not get any more”.
