Fall In! (2)
MetadataShow full item record
Description(Black and White) This is a reprinting of Begbie's poem, "Fall In," urging men to join the military. At the time of the postcard printing, it appears that Begbie's words had been set to music by Sir Frederic Cowen, and copyrighted by Enoch & Sons. The proceeds of this card, which could be purchsed at any Boots The Chemists, would benefit the Prince of Wales' Fund. This card is uninscribed and unposted.
This collection previously belonged to Dominic Hibberd, an English biographer most noted for the biographies of Wilfred Owen and Harold Monro, World War I poets. He collected these postcards for research purposes.
