This is kind of an odd basic training postcard.

Farewell cards were quite common as well - most being quite cheesy.

I believe this one to be a pre-WW I card about America's readiness. I don't own this (but I'd like to) as I found it on the web. It's worth showing despite the poor quality.

The final theme for today's batch of postcards is that of the importance of writing and receiving letters in respect to morale on both sides of the Atlantic.

Apparently this was a reference to the ever increasing shortage of raw materials in Germany due to the naval blockade that Great Britain imposed on that nation … The Army version.

Solcarlus, thanks for your contribution to this topic.

 

It would be nice to see some more AEF/America themed French postcards … Please post more if you find any.

 

I've yet to see any British made America/AEF themed postcards? Anybody out there seen any?
