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. 

Hello Lesley Cockell - thank you for following!
