Merry Christmas from WWI

At my mother's request- here is a Christmas card that was sent to my great aunt by my Grandfather, Thomas Beamish, when he was stationed in France during WWI. It is strange that they had cards with soldiers on them for the troups to send. I have many of his letters to his sister during the war and I have transcribed about half of them. Although he seldom mentions the fighting in his letters, there is a mention of the cease-fire that took place during one Christmas eve. I will post that later.
