Hi Pal's,

If you'd not already heard, I'm moving to Ypres this week (lucky me!!!!!) my neighbour (in his 80's) invited me up to his flat to see his Dad's 1915 xmas card ( obviously I was excited) I was expecting a readymade one, however this piece was a handmade and illustrated card with a watercolour of a Tommy sat in his snowy trench, absolutely fab!

When I get the opportunity I'll post a copy if you'd like.

The Chap was also a ww2 veteran of N Africa, Italy, and the D - Day landings (signals), he also let me see his own drawings done at the time.
