Well after the last post which was super long here’s a very quick one.
In this post we’re sharing a wonderful postcard from the 2014 Creative Challenge Stitching Love and Hope to re-interpret WW1 Silk Postcards.
This postcard was stitched by Dorothy Brann and honours her grandfather.
The central emblem of the postcard is the cap badge of his regiment – the Sherwood Foresters Regiment (1881-1970)
The symbolic elements on the badge include the Maltese Cross, an oak wreath and a white hart (large male deer).
This postcard is deeply personal, evocative and very moving.
