  1. How very interesting! I enjoyed reading this so much. Thank you for sharing this.

    Happy PFF!

  2. I do enjoy stories like that. I also like the fact that it was sent from Wales, has the Declaration of Abroath stamp and was sent to England. A card covering three countries. A well travelled card.

  3. Hmm, I'm not at all sure whether to believe the Royal Mail, but who's to know?

  4. Such a nice article. Thanks for sharing this. I clicked on the photo and it enlarged enough to read.

  5. That postcard indeed took its time to travel.

  6. Great story! Have a great weekend.
