Postcards from France

By Leslie Lyons

My grandmother kept a number of post cards which he sent to her. They give little information and are stamped as being passed by the censor. One written in January 1915 says “Dear Mother, Just a few lines to let you know that I am in the best of health. Best love from Bert.” A second, with a picture of a group of soldiers on the front and written some time later says “Just a few lines to let you know that I am in the land of the living yet. Best love to all, Bert.”

  • This postcard was sent by Albert to his sister Sophia (then aged 21) in December 1914. The message written in purple pencil is now quite difficult to read.All correspondence had to be pased by the censor.

    ” Dear Sister, I received your letter alright and was glad to hear from you.  Best of love from Bert.”
