More Info →Postcard sent from the front during WWI

Postcard from Pat Argyle, on active service during World War One, to his young brother Leslie. The Argyles lived in Bunnythorpe, Manawatū.

"Dear Les. Hope you will not be disappointed with the P.C. but it is the best I can get. It is one from a case of jam at the front so it will be a bit of a curio for you. Hope you will give it a place in your album. Pat." On the front is added " I would not fancy the jam would you Les. Pat."

Pat, and Len his brother who served with him, both died at Chunuk Bair, Gallipoli in 1915.
