Postcards

I have been fascinated by the comic postcards of the Great War for a long time. That anyone could find humour in such times of horror is amazing.

My collection consists mainly of cards by Bruce Bairnsfather, published by Bystander as "Fragments from France", and cards by Douglas Tempest, published by Bamforth, who also published many more sentimental cards and song cards.
