My father, Richard Sydney Wilkie, was posted overseas during the War.

Whilst in France he sent me postcards of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs written in French which he translated on the back.

This postcard reads:

French : Pour faire a Blanche Neige les Nains font leur toilette energiquement — sauf Grincheux, qui se montra recalcitrant.

English : To please Snow White, the Dwarves energetically wash themselves, all except Grumpy, who was being stubborn.

This story was submitted to the People’s War site by Becky Barugh of the BBC Radio Shropshire CSV Action Desk on behalf of Mrs Julia Frost who very kindly shared it with us. It has been added to the site with her permission and she fully understands the site's terms and conditions.
