Burnley Pictures and Postcards from the Great War
Young Kitchener - poem of appreciation

This postcard was published locally, printing a poem written by Pte. A Vickers in appreciation of a parcel he had received from "Little Kitchener"
Private Ambrose Vickers was not a Burnley man, born in Bunbury in Cheshire, he was a coach smith by trade. At the start of the war he was almost 40 years old, and not eligible for front line service
