First World War

As it is Armistice Day, the day that peace was finally declared on the Western Front in World War I, I thought I would show a card from war time.  Although it has no postmark, from looking at similar cards, this must date from approximately 1915.  The Great War, the war that was supposed to end all wars.


  1. Hi there. I posted an article on the last remaining American Doughboy veteran from World War I. He is Frank Buckles and he is 107 years old! This is the link: http://electionissues.today.com/2008/11/11/last-wwi-doughboy-oldest-vet-is-107-years-old/

  2. Beautiful sentiment on the card.

  3. Thank you both. Doug, I read your article. There were three ex-servicemen at the ceremony in London, Henry Allingham, 112, Harry Patch, 110, and Bill Stone, 108. Amazing men.


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