To help commemorate New Zealand's First World War Centenary I will share with you 100 postcards from my private collection.
These include real photographic images, artistic depictions and some handwritten messages of heartache and sorrow.

Be Sure We Are Winners
“Be Sure We Are Winners.” This patriotic postcard was published by the American Studio at Heliopolis in Cairo. An oval photographic portrait of a New Zealand soldier of the Field Artillery Regiment has been glued onto the front of the card. A printed message on the back reads: “With Hearty Christmas greetings and every good wish for your Health, Happiness, and Prosperity throughout the coming year.”
