Description

Stampless Russian Field Service postcard (vertical fold) written by a British nurse from Proskurov in Ukraine, to her mother in Ireland, with cyrillic Red Cross cachet. The British hospital at Podgaitse was withdrawn to Cherkhov and then to Proskurov following the Austrian and German offensive in Galicia. The message refers to meeting English soldiers, and Proskurov being the chief base of the British division (being the R.N.A.S armoured car division).
