    Default WWI period postcards

    Picked these up today. One French of the Somme I think, one of a member of the Army Service Corps with cloth title and ammo bandoleer, one asking for donations for tobacco for the troops with a good image of a Tommy smoking and one with the words of a song and a good image of a Tommy.

    Nice images and still affordable. I like the portrait postcard of the ASC soldier.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Nice cards Jerry!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    picked up two more today, one of an unknown soldier and one promoting unity with our allies and must be fairly early in date as it has only 5 flags on it.

    Thanks John for adding yours, two very good examples IMHO. Maybe a mod could pin this thread and it could be added to by any who want to?
