Picture Postcard from Germany

Driver Moreton Wilson RASC (known as ‘Joe’) from Workington, Cumberland.
Moreton sent this photograph back home to his family while in captivity.
On the back, he wrote : “I send you this on my birthday”.

[Moreton sent this photograph of himself to his family while he was a Prisoner of War in Germany, with the permission of the Germans. It was sent via the Red Cross in Switzerland, a neutral power]
