Keeping in touch

Field Service postcard. The cards were used to send a short message home without the need for the message to be censored, providing reassurance for those at home. The card was sent by Burnley born Victoria Cross winner Hugh Colvin. Hugh was born in Rosegrove. A commemorative stone was laid in Burnley in 2017.
