David Evans has been working like a demon lately. I’ve a huge backlog of stories and articles he’s sent me. Some of the most remarkable stuff he’s been sending me lately are scans of items from the personal collection of local lady Jenny Langford. Amongst the keepsakes and memorabilia that Jenny has kindly allowed me to publish here are these interesting and poignant postcards from the First World War.
David had this to say about these cards:
From the brother of Charles Collins, of Walsall Wood Express transport, to John Langford,
From active service with South Staffs in WW1 to home. These were called blueys and the postcards were printed by French photographers and could contain no message. I hope to work with Jenny to build an article around this incredible find.
