Re-interpretation of WW1 Silk Postcard

Detail 1 of 2014 Creative Challenge Postcard by Elvi McCann

Elvi’s note on this postcard:
‘I was inspired by the story of how the forget-me-not flowers were named. It reminded me of mortally wounded soldiers in the battle field thinking of their loved ones, hoping they would not be forgotten.’
Part of the 2014 ACT Embroiderers Guild Creative Challenge to Re-interpret WW1 postcards. This Challenge linked to the Commemorations of WW1.
