For the Empire
MetadataShow full item record
Description(Color) This picture looks like an unrolled scroll held down by two small weights and a stem of small white flowers against a red background. The poem, "British Pluck," appears to be written on the paper. The card is unposted but there is a pencil marking of "WWI" on the top left hand corner of the back and some pen writing in the space provided for the stamp that reads "30/12/1914/ Sa: Le:/ (illegible initials)."
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.
