Postcard from Nurse Margaret Ripley in St Omer to her mother, sent 21 July 1915

Sent by a nurse, Margaret Ripley, to her mother back in England.

 

Interesting that this card is the first for over a month. Did she not send any, or are they simply missing from this album? Given teh brevity and tone of the message I highly doubt this was the first time she had written for a long while.

 

As far as I can tell (corrections and additions welcome) this reads:

"21.7.15

Papers have been received all right. No letter yesterday as I expected hope to have it today. Everything just the same.

Best love

Mar"
