Postmarked Field Post Office, dated 21 February 1943.

Pourquoi toujours dormir seul?
Why still sleeping on my own?

Sent by my father, on active service, four months after he and my mother were married. The message reads "Have nearly given up all hope of receiving any mail". Poor soul. My mother kept almost all his letters from the war years.

I didn't know he'd been in France, but of course he may not have been.


  1. Such a sweet and cute looking postcard!

  2. That is so touching, and such a cute card!


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