Postcards from World War One - France
My great grandfather, Reginald Trevor, an Australian soldier in World War One, sent these postcards home to his mother while overseas. They depict scenes from France, including the Somme.
Please scroll to the bottom of this page to view links to all the letters he sent home to his mother during World War One.
Many postcards produced during the First World War were used for propaganda, and showed rousing images of the Allied troops defeating the enemy, (click here for a multimedia display of these from a First World War website on the topic). However the postcards featured below are scenic shots, much like the photographs my great grandfather enjoyed taking during his time serving. Unfortunately many of his photographs were lost and to make up for this, he sent these postcards home to his family.
