|Title||Silk embroidered greetings cards from Trevor Harris|
|Notes||Greetings cards sent home from France by Trevor Harris, 121 Brg. RFA to family in Aberdare, Glamorgan (NB one in Welsh, 2 in English).|
I understand these cards were hand-embroidered by French women in long strips, then they were cut up and backed and sold to the troops.
Some has a little 'pocket' with a small card inside - there is such a small card on one of the images.
Most of the images were flowers, birds, and other sentimental images.
'A Joyful Christmas', farm scene in snow with flowers, holly, and Red Ensign; 'To my Dear Brother', farm and flowers; 'To my Dear Sister', flowers.
Pte. Trevor Harris, 121 Brg. Royal Field Artillery. The 121 Brigade was attached to the 38th (Welsh) Division.
