Real People - - PUZZLE TRAIL -

This Christ­mas card was for troops in the trenches in the First World War. I won­der if it could be of any value?

Tim Wat­son, Con­is­brough, South York­shire

These cards were made to boost mo­rale in the trenches, and are an in­ter­est­ing snap­shot of so­cial his­tory. They are col­lected, but gen­er­ally change hands for lit­tle more than £5. Any ad­di­tional prove­nance, such as the sender’s his­tory or mem­o­ra­bilia added to the card, would add value.
