One can only imagine that this Red Cross nurse broke more than a few soldier’s hearts during the First World War. Even Jakealoo admits to being just a little smitten. 😉
This real photo postcard, published by Valentine and Sons of Dundee, is beautifully composed and of very high quality, but unfortunately there is no clue as to the nurse’s identity. The back of the postcard contains a message from a father to his son dated August 1, 1917. It also shows that the card is part of the “Valentine’s Series” and so I’m hoping that some day I may find more information on this specific card. If you have information that might help me identify this nurse please contact me or leave a comment below. Thank you.
