This censored postcard dates from after the Armistice and reminds us that military service continued on as the 11th November 1918 only represented an Armistice – not the final peace. This card was sent 11th December 1918

“My dear M, I was so pleased to receive another letter from you last night am glad to hear you are still improving. We are having lovely weather here. today I could almost fancy it is spring instead of winter. Sorry to hear Billy is poorly trust it is only a cold and that by now he is improving. My best again to all friends and … to yourself … Yours And”
