Description(Black and White) This postcard displays poem text with title and no additional adornments. (The tune is likely the same as the popular British song by the same name, written by Jack Judge and Harry Williams before the war, but popularized on the front as early as 1914.) Affixed is a green stamp, costing a halfpenny, and none of the postmark is present to determine date, time and place, with the exception of August 6. The card was sent from George Hunt to Miss J. Allomby, because he saw the card and thought she would like it.
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.
