One Hundred Postcards
Showing at the Western Australian Museum – Albany.
Six soldiers serving in the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) during World War One sent over one hundred postcards to home-nurse Eliza ‘Lida’ Jane Downey of Boulder, Western Australia, while training or on active duty overseas. Sadly most were killed, wounded or medically incapacitated, while serving on the Western Front. The showcase features over 100 postcards sent from this period.
