The Embroidered Postcards

These really are delightful and beautifully made with the colours still as fresh as when they were sent from the Front Line nearly 100 years ago. Some of the cards were made with a flap with a small card tucked inside for a message. They would have been sent in an envelope which preserved the delicate embroidery.
