Colour picture postcard of of four soldiers seated around a camp fire. Entitled 'Tommy's Mail Day' the postcard is also printed with a verse. The postcard was sent to a Miss McDonald in Dunfermeline with a postmark 30th January 1919. This was one in a series of postcards published during World War I for use by families and soldiers separated by war. Soldiers serving on the front line were officially encouraged to keep in touch with families at home. Such idyllic images on picture postcards were intended to mask the reality of life for those serving in the trenches.
