A Postcard from Egypt
My uncle, Ernie (Squib) Green, sent the original of this postcard to one of his sisters from Egypt during WW2. He spent his time in the army mostly in Egypt and Syria, and was fortunate enough to return uninjured. Ernie was second eldest of 10 children, and his older brother Frank and youngest brother Peter also served in the war. Another brother Les, worked on the land farming and so was part of essential services. I have not seen another postcard like this and have wondered how and where he had it made.
