Postcard politics — 3 Comments

  1. I love those WW1 cards. Jack’s Aunt had about 20 of them. The personal messages were short and simple. I would have loved them but she had two daughters and I only hope they came down the line to the grand-daughter with an eye for a needle and an interest in history.

  2. One wonders if an insight into the future events would have made any difference to their attitudes. Probably not. I find the post war Christmas card far more depressing than the ones sent during the war. There seems no hope or compromise in the sentiments there.

  3. I found it depressing that someone should go through such experiences and revert to type at the end of it all. Maybe we would all do if we were faced with the grimness of the post-war situation, the Big Flu and all.
