dc.description(Color) This card is a clever poem intended to make light of the rations. A red bow makes it look like the poem is printed on top of a present. There is no stamp or postmark, but the message from Lizzie and Ben to J. W. Caraluther indicates that the sender is poking fun at this "ration card."en
dc.descriptionThis 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.en
