The Brodie helmet worn by this soldier was in use in both the First and Second World Wars so I would need to identify the rifle to be able to tell which war this was for. That’s beyond me. Perhaps there is another clue in there that someone can tell me about.

These were two of the stamps –


  1. I would have automatically assumed it was WWII but now you have me doubting. Great postcard though.

  2. based on this

    I would say World War I.

    1. Super - thanks David.
