We have had submitted another card from what appears to be the same family as 72ROM & 73SAN. The previous card is written from Len to Mrs Whitehead and here Les mentions he has seen Len recently. We believe the two are brothers. This card was sent 19th July 1915

214ROM - A postcard sent from Les to his mother Mrs Whitehead 2015 (Front & Back)

The transcribed text reads:

‘Dear Ma Just a line to let you know I arrived home quite safely. Got here about 7.30 when they shouted fall in this morning at 7 there was none of us up so we had to scratch out. I went to see Aunt Holly and saw Len in Maidstone. Love from Lesly.
