In Other Words, handmade…



It was an old handmade postcard from World War One.

The army insignia stitched onto the cardboard.

Someone had painstakingly sewn it all those years ago.

Still, in good condition, it contained a message never forgotten.

Best wishes from a new husband, killed a few days later, to his young wife and newly born son.
