The Postcard below shows the Royal Garrison Artilery at Lydd. Judging by the language, we believe the postcard is from a student to his old teacher in Cumberland. The card was sent 11th Feb 1916

284LYD - R.G.A At Lydd (Front & Back)

The Transcribed text reads:

‘Dear Sir, Sorry I did not write sooner. This is the kind of gun I am training on expect to go abroad with same. Hoping you are keeping A1 like myself. I am working for my living at last. Joe.’

‘Mr J. T. Beatson, Whitehaven Road, Cleaton Moar ,Cumberland’
