Larkhill, January 3, 1917

Wednesday     Stayed in today another Battery borrowed our Guns Weather fair

Percy took advantage of the break in firing to send some postcards, choosing the nearest and best-known site. This he sent to Janie,

writing on the back: “Dear J xxx, About four thousand people were here the year before last to see this sunrise and 2000 last I thought you would like to have some of these photo’s. Percy YH xxx”

The British postmark is January 4, 1917; it is stamped as arriving in Joliette on January 15, 1917. That’s a pretty quick crossing in midwinter.

The post card is one of many photographs taken by T.L. Fuller of Amesbury. We have seen his work before.
