The next two postcards in the album, 'the letter from Papa', 'the letter to Papa'.
Sent in 1943 from Italy to England.  The colouring on the first card was probably done by the daughter who received the postcard.
I always think this style of card has a sense of sadness attached to it.  


  1. Fascinating : so fascinating that I have worked my way back through the previous posts in this series.

  2. I really like the top card, doodles included! The view of the sailor and his sideways glance with the ship on the horizon is nice.

  3. I also find these cards very sad. They really make you feel the sense of separation and the threat that Papa may not return.
