Well folks, all things must pass, and as we come to the forty ninth Daily Postcard, this set of three Bamforth cards is the penultimate post in our series. Perhaps, like the Daily Mail cards we have seen, this will just be Series One, who knows.
This was certainly the first set of Bamforth cards I ever bought, and probably the first Great War postcards of any sort that caught my attention and led to this little collection that I have been dipping into for your pleasure for the past seven weeks. Note the V.C. and the background images of the deed for which it was awarded.
Still one of my favourites.
As this is one of only a very few sets of Bamforth cards that I own that have been used, I might as well show you the reverse sides, in order,…
…particularly because they constitute a single message, written over all three cards.
Final Daily Postcard tomorrow.
Well M have got to say have really enjoyed this series of cards such variety of style and content, who knew that there were such items and so prolifically printed at that time,
This is another lovely set and very poignant, what did Britain do for him when he returned? Or when he was old and grey. Interesting that the cards are written on in sequence but no postmark or date stamp I wonder why the address is clearly on each one,
Will these be the end of our little band?
Thanks M. And no reason it should be. That’s up to all of you. Excluding the Daily Postcard posts there are about 970 other posts on this site, so if you can’t find enough there to talk about between you – having written the stuff in the first place, I can really only join a conversation that one of you has started – then I must be doing something wrong!
