Title

'Who said Invasion!'

A comic British postcard

Description

    • A British comic and patriotic postcard.
    • The comical figure of a small boy dressed in an approximation of a British guardsman’s red tunic and bearskin, with a pretend rifle and bayonet slung over his shoulder, stares out at the viewer from the front of this postcard, beneath a billowing Union flag and above the caption, ‘Who said Invasion!’ The printed information on the reverse of this postcard states, ‘W. & K., London, E.C. / Series No. 3258. / Printed in England.’ The postmark tells us that it was franked on 5 December 1914 in Gateshead [then in County Durham]. There is a name and address written in pencil: Miss A Mowbray / 76 Office St / Littleburn / Langley Moor / Durham’, along with a message that reads: ‘you may come tomorrow, to get there 4-16 if you care to / Jack’.
