    Interesting Photo Of All The Allied Nations Officers Gathering in Cherbourg 1918


    Recommended Posts

    Hi Gents

    i thought I’d share this picture/Rppc I have.

    The reverse is dated 10/10/18. However there is no stamp or post mark so I guess it was written then enclosed in a letter.

    The annotation on the front dates the image as 14 July 1918 in Cherbourg.

    I would also guess it is a private photo as opposed to a commercial postcard but if that’s not the case then it may be familiar to you already and not so interesting.

    Despite it being 35 years since my last French lesson in school even I can have a stab at the annotation on the front....

    The obvious bits say


    (something) of 14 July 1918 in Cherbourg.

    Italians, Americans, English, Belgian, French

    (something) the armies ‘metropolitans et maritime’ -  land and sea?








    I hope you like Gents....
