Vintage Postcard Collection

These postcards comprised an album put together by my maternal grandmother, Jessica Amelia Jackson (neé Dixon) during and after the First World War. The majority of the cards were sent to her by my grandfather, Sapper John Percival Jackson as he was posted to various places in Western Europe between September 1914 and April 1920. Others were sent to my grandfather, in English, French or Italian. I am grateful to Jan Waugh for helping translate most of the French.

Message on reverse:  ... won't guarantee its length, and tell you as much as possible how I felt on leaving you last Sunday night and since. Frank and I went card hunting this morning and found one or two nice ones. If ever I send you any you have had before you may if you wish give them to Muriel, if not well do what you like with them. Will terminate until tomorrow with all my love and many 'baisers d'amour' Ever yours, John
