An extraordinary collection of postcards sent to a Boulder woman from men serving on the front line of World War One will go on display at the Western Australian Museum – Albany from Saturday 27 September.
More than one hundred postcards were sent from six young soldiers serving in the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) to home-nurse Eliza ‘Lida’ Jane Downey.
WA Museum history curator Stephen Anstey said the postcards were sent from the soldiers while they were training and when they were on active duty overseas.
