The front of the card, inset, shows four towns – Normandy in France, Nijmegen in The Netherlands, Turnhout in Belgium and Brilon in Germany with the English county of Lincolnshire written in the middle.

It was sent in 1945 and signed by what looks like ‘Parry’ of the 4th Battlaion, The Lincolnshire Regiment.
