(Sambre Et Meuse (Please Play Me)

We all remember our first time at Peninsula Barracks; the training, and nights buffing up the floors, spitting and polishing our boots, letters home and the odd phone call. friendships formed.

Just by chance I was given some picture post cards by a fellow Rifleman, dating back from 1902 to 1917. Back in those days, this was probably the only form of communication the Riflemen, our forebears would Probably had at this time.

On the picture post cards, are pictures of the old Peninsula Barracks with drill being taken, and how the square looked back in those days, the post cards are all originals, and you can read the writing on them too. I hope you all enjoy viewing them…
