A Sister's Love . . .

. . . from Scarborough.
Dated  9 January 1919, this card was written to Tom, thanking him for his letters and promising a letter in a day or two. 
Given the date, I imagine Tom to be a returned soldier who is wounded and recovering either in a hospital or some kind of convalescent home.  But I don't know for sure.  I find the card quite depressing really, I get that the sister will be sad that her brother is away at War or because of the War, but this card seems to have so much sadness that I worry it would have only made Tom feel worse.

  1. It is sad. You can only hope she replied soon after with a letter, as Tom is probably pretty much alone and away from family.
