From this postcard, we have assumed that WH is on holiday and it seems that 25 Cheriton Road could have been a boarding house during the War. Note the abbreviation D Mrs W- Dear Mrs Wood.

The postcard was sent 28th July 1916

170FLK - Earl Kitchener (Postcard) (Front & Back)

The transcribed text reads:

‘D Mrs W. You will see where we are landed. We went to Broadmead Road, but thought it too far from the beach. We are only 5min walk to it from here, the weather is perfect. We came yesterday and hope to stay a fortnight. Love from W H’
