Set Comment

black & white drawings, faint Tuck logo on front of the card to the front, both clearly drawn by the same hand. black & white drawings Green Jackets Museum writes about the card to the front:- "This card sent to every member of 4 Corps by Lady Rawlinson, wife of the Corps Commander, Lieutenant-General Sir Henry Rawlinson, at Christmas 1914, soon after the First Battle of Ypres, is typical of a number in the Museum. In particular, the hopes of 'success, victory and a safe return' seem, in retrospect, to have been ironically premature."
