The ink of the postmarks stamped on the back of this postcard have leached through to the front (they say ‘PLYMOUTH / 7 – / 12 FEB 18’ and ‘BUY NATIONAL WAR BONDS’). The initials of the artist who drew the illustration (‘C.T.N.’) headed ‘With Love from Daddy.’ can be seen beneath the British soldier who is portrayed embracing his small daughter. The postcard has been addressed in black ink to ‘Miss Elsie Butler / 21 Victoria St / Reading’, and the message reads, ‘Dear Elsie Butler / Thank you for your PC. I have sent a box of 6 for mother tell her to give you two each no more this time from your ever loving father [?] H Butler’. The typeset details on the back include ‘Copyright Printed and Published by J. Salmon [?] England / E. Mack, King Henry’s Rd, Hampstead, London’.
