With the Compliments of the Season

A seasonal card from WW1 for this week's Sepia Saturday.
On the reverse: Harold Moyse, 11 Victoria Parade, Muswell Hill, N. and the Town, Enfield. The hand-written message reads With the Compliments of the Season from Marion & Tom to Mr & Mrs C. Moses.

Tom is wearing the uniform of the Royal Army Medical Corps (RAMC); his wife Marion and their daughters are beautifully dressed. The family makes me think of my grandfather's photograph and I wonder whether Tom met a different fate.

My own Compliments of the Season to all my fellow Sepia Saturday participants.

Have a very Merry Christmas and keep the cards and photos coming.

I do hope Tom survived but even if he did, the job of the RAMC in those days was not an easy one.
Merry Christmas to you, Wibbo!

I hope Tom met a different fate than your grandfather.
