Now this Silkie card is from a pilot in the Royal Flying Corps to his girlfriend and the plane is covered in Forget-me-not flowers.
Pilots in WWI were very brave when they flew in those planes without a parachute! Now parachutes were invented but the top brass did not allow them to have them because they thought if the fighting got too much for the pilot he would only jump out. So if your plane got badly shot up and was going down you went with it.
My Mother's fiancé was a pilot and was shot down and killed in WWI.

They were mostly produced by French and Belgian women refugees who worked in their homes and refugee camps, and then sent the finished strips to factories for cutting and mounting on postcards.
