Born in August 1887 in Awsworth Notts, to Henry and Sarah Lamin. Elder Sisters Catherine (Kate), Mary Esther and Sarah Anne(Annie) and Elder brother John (Jack).
Educated at Awsworth Board School, just outside Ilkeston, Derbyshire, England.
I served with honour in the 9th Battalion York & Lancaster Regiment seeing front line action in Flanders and Northern Italy from the end of 1916 to January 1920.
I have about 3 of these post cards that my wife's grandfather sent home during WWI and am amazed at the beauty and quality of them.

The silk card was very interesting. My great uncle had sent his sister, my grandmother, one similar to this while he was in France in 1919. I had never seen another like it until I saw yours. I have posted a picture of mine on the Iowa Great War site.
