This card was sent in 1915 by Dick to his friend Jack. Dick gives his address as 19 Siege Comp, 4 Section, Lydd, and promises his friend a long letter which he will write when he is next on guard all night- this gives some idea of the lack of activity in this location. The card was sent 15th March 1915
