Sorry, I had to post them as I got them. your lucky that I no longer have my postcard collection, amongst them I had hundreds pertaining to the Napoleonic war, but sold them to my brother about ten years ago. Mind you, I'm going to complete my Rousselot collection this year, so 'watch this space. (there will be no need to thank me, I will take it as said)

Thank you very much for you rep it is most appreciated.

Paul
