The postcard below was sent 21st August 1914. Perhaps the author is writing to someone who has enlisted in the army and won’t be seeing him again for a while.

334RAM - The Waterfall Ramsgate (Front & Back)

The transcribed text reads:

‘Dear Bert hope you arrived home safe I missed you after you had gone back I stopped on the pier for an hour after you had gone, then came back to Ramsgate. I am going over to see Edie today Friday. Don’t forget Sunday write soon, love Violet’

‘Mr Cresswell, 2 Loftus villas Loftus road Shepherds Bush, London’
