Description(Color) This postcard contains a poem written as a letter with a fill in the blank for "From," in which the sender filled in the name "Arthur." The picture to the left of the text is called "At 'Duty's Call'" and depicts a soldier in front of a British flag. The Subtitle reads " At Witley Camp," which is a variation on the other postcard in this collection by the same name, "I'm thinking of You Everyday." There is no stamp or postmark, but the card is written from Arthur to his mother and father.
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.
