Description 
An unused WW1 postcard which has the poem, "The Old Man's Share", by Harold Begbie, on the back, which begins: "Go with my blessing, lad most sweet; No thought of me shall hold you back; Be last in every fiece retreat, Be first in every swift attack; Your blood is up to meet the foe; Braver am I! - I let you go; Old men, as well, must pay War's price; Well, here's your father's sacrifice."
