'Gone but not forgotten' Postcard

Contributed by Gerry Anderson Bus Run - Cathy

This is just one postcard from my collection. It's a card which would have been sent to a soldier on the front-line in the First World War. This one is in English but I have also collected cards that would have been sent to German soldiers. On the backs of all the postcards are the most moving messages from loved-ones back at home, which show how the separation and hardship of war affected everyone, no matter which side you were fighting for.
