After rather a gap, here is the final postcard that I have from Jack to Miss Hards. There is probably research to be done as we have her name and address – which could even lead to identifying the elusive Jack – but that’s for another day. In the meantime, I can tell you that ‘The Hall, Ashford’, is still standing and is on the market!
Friday 1st February 1918
To: Miss Hards, The Hall, Ashford, Bakewell, Derbyshire, England.
PASSED BY CENSOR No. 3477
