    Picked today, convalescing soldier in hospital blues and lady friend wearing his hat, with a "sentiment" below. It has INVEST in Government Securities where the stamp should go, a clear wartime message.

    A photo rather than a PC, Brecknockshire Bn SW Borderers. I have shown a retouched version as it was in pretty poor condition.

    A few additions from me, two to the Monmouthshire regiment showing the rifles buttons that were used by 1st Mons.

    Also one to a member of 7th Bn RWF, as seen on his shoulder titles, this is a very sharp image.

    7th Welsh cyclists with blackened T over 7 over Welsh metal titles and rifles buttons. A lovely sharp image of the titles, including the black nature of them.
