I’ve updated the page illustrating J.C. Wilson patriotic postcards with overseas destinations to the current site format, adding additional background to the cards when available.
A section on overseas use of covers from the old web site format has been reimplemented under the current design, with an update added.
This example of a WLS-P05 postcard has been used from Brooklyn, NY, USA to Switzerland, postmarked March 17, 1899.
Another J.C. Wilson Soldiers of the Queen WLS-P09 Type I postcard mailed to France has been added, this time mailed from Hamilton Ontario to Bastia. The card bears a 1¢ QV Numeral stamp cancelled with a Hamilton Flag A cancel, applied over the words “Printed Matter”, with the sender striking out the “Private Post Card” text of the card.
An example of a use of a WLS-P09 Type I postcard has been added, mailed from Montreal on February 24, 1901, to Castres, France.
