The Daily Postcard No. 44

Snowy scenes from early in the war today.  This first card shows one of the early actions on the Eastern Front, as the Germans eject the Russians from eastern Germany at the Battle of the Masurian Lakes, between 7th & 14th September 1914. 

The reverse features a nice little portrait of Hindenburg.

Here we see more French-battering in Alsace in the winter of 1914,…

…the card written in May 1915,…

…and finally we have Austro-Hungarians & Germans once again fighting Russians, this time in the Carpathians, in February 1915,…

…the reverse of the card, posted in September 1915, referring to ‘The World War 1914/15’.

    Love the clarity of these cards seem very sharp and there seems to be a light cast over the first card, it’s quite bright. Fighting conditions appalling muds bad enough but the cold and snow.
    Hope you all had a good VE Day. Some interesting and poignant coverage on the tv.

      I have to say that these type of ‘battle’ cards are among my favourites – the light you mention is beautifully done, I think.
