Sid & Elsie : love across the miles and down the years 7

Happy New Year! This is the final postcard from Sid to Elsie, simply dated ‘Salonica 1918’. My thanks, once again, go to Wendy Nicholson for sharing these touching cards with the SCS.

Loving Greetings
Far over the miles that divide us
This simple card brings to you, dear,
A greeting from someone who loves you
And who wishes that you could be near
But though you’re away just at present,
Fond memories always remain
And loving thoughts always are with you,
Looking forward to see you again.

To My Dear Wife from
Your True and Devoted
Sid xxxxx

Robin Braysher joined the SCS in 2003 and soon after became editor of the Society’s journal, ‘The New Mosquito’, a role he held until 2008. He then became the Society’s web editor, a role he seems unable to shake off. His interest in the campaign comes from his grandfather, Fred, who served as a cyclist with the BSF from 1915-1917, mainly in the Struma valley.
