    Default WW1 Field service postcards

    Hi all, just thought these may be of interest. They are WW1 British field service postcards (known as "quick firers" by the troops). They were designed to give family and friends back home only the most basic information about their loved ones in the trenches.

    Does anyone know if these are common or rare? I have never seen them before.

    Many thanks.

    There are pretty common as they were issued by the thousands. Very cool though!
