    these are cards my grandfather sent back home, all are written but not stamped, so I assume they must have been enclosed with letters. John.Click image for larger version.

    Hi John,

    always great to see family items, these fabric cards are not something I own any of, but I have always thought they are really typical of the period. He obviously loved his wife.

    Part of the tobacco fund where people made donations to send cigarettes and tobacco to the front line troops during WWI. The card is the reply from the front line to a local newspaper editor in my home town of Cardiff. I have never seen a reply card before and to get one from my home town is a real bonus. In the first post of this thread is the more typical example that was sold to raise money to buy the tobacco products to send to the troops with the illustration by the same artist.
