Field Service Postcards were used by soldiers on active service to send speedy messages home without any need for censoring by their officers. Their purpose was to reassure their loved ones that they were alive and well and to confirm that letters and parcels from home were getting through to the Front. The soldier was allowed to delete as appropriate from a selection of pre-printed sentences. If anything other than a date and signature were added the card would be destroyed.
