Dear Hiral, I hope this catches you some time before you leave. Am having a lovely time. Have climbed one of these hills, and been to lots of towns etc. Please send your adress. Love Anne
On the back of the card this view of The Malverns is described as being ‘from the slopes of the Herefordshire Beacon, looking north towards wooded Wynd’s Point and along the outline of the oldest hills in England’
The card is post marked ‘BASINGSTOKE 10 July 1981 HANTS’, which is a considerable distance from The Malverns, so was obviously posted after the visit. It also carries the familiar ‘Be Properly Addressed POSTCODE IT’ post mark, along with an 11½p stamp – the cost to send a small postcard in 1981
In her message Anne is hopeful that I will receive the card before leaving to start work in Norway. As letters and cards would be my only means of communication it was important to keep friends and family up to date with address changes, hence her request.
This is another of the many cards that I have received from Anne over the years and we remain in touch.
