Silks

A Piperguy48 Production

A collection of postcards that were sent by soldiers at the front of WW1 to family and loved ones back home. They gave no hint of the horrors they were experiencing. They were made by the women & girls of France and Belgium and sold to the troops on leave for a few francs or guilders.
