    I love the old postcards and photo-postcards - notably the latter, though at times I can't help but wonder whatever became of the person in uniform? They seem to me to be very poignant. Congratulations on the pick ups.

    Great postcards guys.Keep 'em coming.I'll post (!) a few of mine soon when I get a chance.I'm trying to specialise in the Norfolk regiment but ill grab whatever takes my fancy.My local antiques center recently had a huge collection of cards brought in and I was lucky enough to be there at the right time...I'd say 90 % of them were from the same family.Am I the only one who wishes that the name of the man or men on these things were added at the time!!??

    All sold now....
    Pics soon I promise!
