Christmas Eve

I was inspired recently by the report from the Channel Islands about the repatriation of Christmas messages sent by the German troops finding their way home after (BBC link) 71 years.

I recalled one I had that my dad had sent my mother whilst he was in the Mediterranean during the war.  The card shows the foot of Italy which the Durham Light infantry 16 brigade were involved.  (Durham Light Infantry)  Some pictures of my dad during the war from a site administered by Tom Tunney shows the history of his father during the war with the Light Infantry.

This is the card sent by me dad xcard1card2

Merry Christmas
