A Wartime Birthday Card, 1917: Fearless Females - 9

This is a card sent back to my mother (Kathleen Danson)  for her nineth birthday. It came  from her father  William Danson who  was serving in France in the First World War and   is one of a large collection he sent from the war front  to his family (below ). 




The postmark is September 2nd 1917, with Kathleen's birthday on September 8th.  Written in feint pencil, it is a bit difficult to decipher, but asks her to help  mother and baby.


My mother is the little girl on  the right of this photograph, with her sister Edith, brother Harry and baby brother Billy, named after his father. c.1916.
