The attached Postcard from World War II shows pictures of my late Father and Mother-in Law's. They were "sweethearts" during the war when my father-in Law served with the Northamptonshire Regiment in Madagascar, Palestine, Sicilly, Italy and North West Europe. I assume that such postcards were freely available for troops as keepsakes, I am however intrigued by the date which says Cairo 16th March 1942 and is shown on a National Bank of Egypt one pound note. I know that he was not in Egypt on this date as he was part of the Madagascar invasion forces (Operation Ironclad) that embarked from Liverpool on the 20th March 1942. Can anybody shed any light on the origins of such postcards?
