With Love from Bill...

....all the way from 3/9/1941!!
A personal favourite from my old photograph collection, Bill. I was with my boyfriend when I bought this Soldier, who screwed up his face at the thought of bringing a stranger back home. I couldn't think of anyone better to bring into my house, he'd be no trouble sat on a shelf next to the others. At least he has a name, kindly written on the back!

But wait, someone has taken a fancy to my Bill......

Back where he belongs, he can watch me set my hair and apply my lipstick.

Love as always, Lucille xx

  7. I think it's so romantic that you brought the photo home. I find it so sad when I see old photos discarded, especially if they have sentimental messages scrawled on the back.
