WW1 Postcards

Leave a Comment
Postcards depicting various races and tribes during WW1 were very popular, especially in France.

Beneath it says: Salute! My Duty Calls.

The reason the soldier is shown as a little child is because it was a popular type of theme for postcards in those days.  Other cards were done showing “kiddie soldiers”.  

This card was published by Inter-Art Co., Red Lion Square, London, W.C.  Artist: Donald McGill.  Card designed early 1915.

If you have any postcards of Sikhs please share with us.
