Two Vintage postcards from a Royal Navy Sailor in the Med.

£9.99

Product description

Two postcards home from a sailor apparently on the Mediterranean. One has a picture of Algiers (Alger) the other is Smyrne.
Both pictures are in colour and look to have been tinted black and white pictures.
The recipient is someone called ‘Lil’, the sender is ‘Walt’ (Walter?). Messages written with fountain pen and describe the locale and weather. They seem to be non specific to avoid identifying exactly where and when these were sent. The cards are not dated, one has ‘Wed’ at top.
Could be from just post WWII?

Both cards are in good condition with some slight corner bumping and edge wear.
