postcards old & new...

This a postcard used by servicemen during the First World War to send messages home to their families.I've been collecting them ever since I came across one at a church fete about 15 years ago. I love them for the beautiful embroidery on the fronts and also for the wonderful messages on the back written in pencil using a formal type of English never heard today.
This is my first postcard since I joined ThePostcard crossing project, a group that sends cards all over the world for the pleasure of sending and receiving cards.
It travelled all the way from Poland and to really show how small a world it is, the lady who sent it has a sister living here in Coventry !
