Counting your luck

The stamp from this card has unfortunately been removed, so obliterating both postmark and date. A little detective work places it during World War I. The message mentions Davington Station (Faversham, Kent) which closed at the end of that war, and "Ern's 6 days' leave".

Why Gert, the writer of the card, would send this particular one to her friend Elsie to arrange a meeting, I really don't know. It may have had a hidden meaning for them, who knows?


  1. That is cool, message is cryptic.

  2. Yes, it certainly does make one wonder ... :)

  3. Oooh, what fun! Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog as now I have found yours. I'll be back....


Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
