Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day everyone. Hope everyone has a great day! I wonder how our ancestors celebrated Valentine's Day?

My grandfather Iles was overseas during the First World War and would not have been home with his wife and children on Valentine's Day. He often sent postcards. I am fortunate that I have some of the ones he sent. Sometimes, he let the words on the postcard convey his message of love. This one is not dated so I don't know whether he sent it near Valentine's Day, but it is a message of love.

On the back the message reads: "This card is how I feel. Will"
