1918 (10th Oct) Albany postmarked b&w photographic postcard showing some form of military quarters, possibly a hospital but of wood/tin construction with a more substantial building in the background. Location unknown but the message has been penned by Hugo Throssell who was a WA farmer who joined the 10th Light Horse & was subsequently awarded the Victoria Cross for action in Gallipoli at Hill 60. It was written & dated 10/10/18 to a Miss Florence Kenworthy, High St, Fremantle. A lovely piece of WA/WWI history.
