My Old Comrade
MetadataShow full item record
Description(Black and White) This is a simple text with a printed song called "My Old Comrade," written by a soldier, Pte. G. Taylor with the 4th Royal Fusiliers. The top of the card reads "Can you give this Ex-service Man a job, or help him by buying this Card? Price 2d." This price is higher than most postcard prices, and seems that an ex-service man may have been selling them. The card depicts the same song as "My Old Comrade (2)." The card is unposted but some markings on the back read 1988 and an indecipherable word.
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.
