'My Dear Son,

I want you to keep this in your wallet. Your father has bought it himself for you so take care of it.

With Best love from

Your Father


I found this very tattered card in a pile of what the stallholder described as 'tat' 50p and it was in my collection.

One of Miltons 'Topical' series entitled 'All British'

Any more details anyone enlighten me as to the regiment etc?

kind regards

I've recently re-discovered this card and in direct messages some years ago someone from the family asked if I would donate it (which I'm happy to) I replied but heard no more. I thought I'd link to it again to see if they saw this.
