OSW-NM-O-5-15-253a – Miss B J D Reid – WW1 Nurse

This postcard was sent to us by a customer who had read the article about Miss B.J.D. Reid (WW1 Q.A. Nurse) in the “Article”  section.  He writes “I have a card written by Nurse Reid and sent from France in 1915. I have attached 2 scans which will hopefully print out ok. I think the addressee is a Miss Ivy Astle or Aster but I can’t find anymore information, Nurse Reid has authorised the card (for free post) in the bottom left. The postmark is “Field Post Office A.3″ which equates to the 3rd Army in France, and the date is 12 Aug 1915. The red triangle is the censor stamp in use at that time. The number in the triangle is 1175. Numbers were allocated to specific units but in this case my reference index does not list the user”
