First World War Silk Postcard - United
Another of my charity shop finds - three First World War silk postcards mounted in a frame. This is a close up of just one of them. The second flag on the left had me slightly foxed, but after a cup of coffee and a quick bounce around the internet, I have sorted them all out.
From left to right, the flags are: Italy, Russian Empire (black double headed eagle on a yellow background), France, Britain, Belgium and Serbia.
Strange that while I was looking all this up my husband answered the door to a lady selling poppies for the British Legion.
