Vintage French postcard, matte front,sepia tones.

Very few postcards bring a lump to my heart, but reading the back of this one, plus the image on the front says so much about how awful it must of been in WW1 for ordinary people around the world.

The bottom shows a woman with her child, whilst at the top is her Husband, still having to fight in the war.
The handwriting on the back is obviously from a French soldier to his 'darling Madeline' in which he speaks of 'This terrible war', ' Sometimes I think I am never going to come home', 'We are all very tired' and speaks of his daughters, and hopes his letters do not worry them too much.

When you hold this card in your hand, think: His hands and his wifes hands have touched this card and felt, and 98 years later, it is your hands. What will you feel?

I wonder if he ever got home?
