Christmas Greetings from the Hertfordshire Regiment

When the First World War broke out the Hertfordshire Regiment mobilised and went to war stations in the Bury St Edmunds  area of Suffolk. The 1st battalion left for France on 5th November, 1914,  leaving the 1st Reserve Battalion in Suffolk to train new recruits. This card shows Stowlangtoft Hall, near Bury St Edmunds, and the picture was drawn by "R.G.G." for Christmas 1914.

Merry Christmas to you all.
