Thank you to Alistair McBeath for
sending me this Valentine postcard, showing the trawling fleet
at Granton at the end of World War I.
"This is a used postcard, dated
1919. It has the words 'Valentine Series' printed on the
back. I believe it is a view of the Western Harbour with Pier
to the right.
The card was
written by a sailor - 'Have got
all demob papers aboard today and are now waiting for orders' ."
