Postcard from Cedric Graham (1916).

Caption

Cedric Graham wrote this postcard to his sister in New Zealand in June of 1916, just prior to boarding a train to the front line in France. He was killed in action just three months later whilst leading his men "over the top" near the French town of Flers.

Dear Hilda

Sorry I have not been able to write you a few lines before I leave for the line by the afternoon train today but I trust this rather rough p.c of myself will do instead. It was taken in this base depot camp a couple of days after my arrival so you will observe that I am in topping health and spirits. I have tons of confidence & am sure of returning in good time to good old N.Z. Hope all is well with you, all is very well with me. Your loving brother. Cedric K Graham.
