A postcard showing The Leas Bandstand in Folkestone. The author of the postcard is unknown but it looks like he has been able to stay with perhaps his brother or friend so far. The card was sent on the 4th Jan 1917.

181FLK - The Leas Bandstand (Front & Back) 1

The transcribed text reads:

at 2am and arrived here at 7. Strange to say our ‘rest’ is the same as our first at Yarmouth ‘Apsly House’. This place is absolutely packed with soldiers. So far Fred and I have been able to keep together.
