Fantastic Rikki.  Keep 'em coming, I've posted the best ones I have - maybe I should go through my stack of unposted postcards again.

Thanks, PB.  Please go through your stack.  Always glad to see them.

Don't give in Carrie!
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

Thanks, PB.  Please go through your stack.  Always glad to see them.

Today's 100 Years ago image reminded me of this one.  Some of the heads of state and military leaders involved in the War, many of whose names we've mostly forgotten.  The names are faint, and in small print.

These images are from the French perspective.  These are French troops, including from the colonies.  There are two faint biplanes just above and to the sides of the French flag.

The four figures at the top aren't named, the two on the left look like cousins George V and Czar Nicholas.  The two on the right ?
