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.
