1st Battalion Royal Scots Fusiliers  (RSF) Original Pre WW1 Photograph Postcard

1st Battalion Royal Scots Fusiliers (RSF) Original Pre WW1 Photograph Postcard

Postally unused some edge wear and fold to bottom right corner otherwise in good condition.

Ifs bully beef tonight lads! Cooks of E Company display their tins of Fray Bentos and very helpfully a set of blackboards confirming the battalion's identity. The date 1912 places them inside a barracks located in South Africa as this is where they were stationed at that time.

WW1 French Made Embroidered Silk Postcard Royal Fusiliers

WW1 French Made Embroidered Silk Postcard Royal Fusiliers

In good condition, but with a very interesting contemporary coloured pencil message to the reverse dated 27th June 1916 which appears to have got passed the censor.

Apart from a general complaint about the contents of his last parcel having been spoilt - he goes on to reveal "we are behind the lines at present but in the trenches every night working on carrying ammunition up".

The preliminary bombardment the week prior to the Somme offensive of 1st July had started on 24th June.

WW1 - Scarce full set of 6 original black and white propaganda photographs relating to the sinking of the SS Lusitania

WW1 - Scarce full set of 6 original black and white propaganda photographs relating to the sinking of the SS Lusitania

The full set of six cards, some wear and marks, including corner creases to some, but a scarce set of six cards which are numbered from 1 to 6 in the bottom right corners, the final one entitled " The last plunge ". The printed text on the reverse is very emotive language which I am not going to repeat here, but you can see it for yourselves in the accompanying photos of the lot. Postally unused, probably a strip sold in a pack of pictures, they are now detached from one another. I have never seen another set. From my collection.
