Postcards from the Front

Still Going Strong

Margaret A Clark

This book is based on over 200 postcards sent by Alfred Haynes to his wife and children during the years 1916-1919 . Author Margaret Clark has also used letters written by other soldiers from the Manning Valley to provide additional detail.

Alf’s cards, in particular reflect the anguish experienced by a soldier who has left wife and family behind to proceed to a war that was consuming men at a fearsome rate.
