The next two postcards in the album are in the same series as those posted last week but are even more melancholic. At first I thought the mother and daughter were praying at a graveside, but I think it's a shrine and they are praying for the safe-keeping of their loved one who is away at sea. I can only imagine what it would have been like to be waiting for mail from someone away in the war and how precious the correspondence would have been. However I don't think I would have felt cheered up receiving postcards like this. Probably it was better than no mail. The sender was an Englishman serving in the Medical Corps, I think as a driver, and the cards were sent from Italy to England in 1943.
