Title

“Good bye, Daddy,” Aldershot.’

A British postcard showing a soldier's farewell to his family

Description

    • A British postcard.
    • Printed at the bottom of this photographic postcard, on which four children are seen bidding their father farewell, are the words ‘“Good bye, Daddy,” Aldershot.’ (and the number ‘3722’). The scene is the railway station at Aldershot, in Hampshire, where a military band stands behind the family group. The badges on his left sleeve indicate that the children’s soldier–father is a corporal and a medical orderly, and it is likely that he is bound for a theatre of war. The printed information on the reverse of the postcard reads as follows: ‘Published by Mrs. R. Hughes, Stationery and Fancy Goods Depot, 95, High Street, Aldershot.’; ‘BRITISH MANUFACTURE’; and a circled ‘G’ preceding the numbers ‘3722-393’.
