Souvenirs

 

The military post obviously worked quite well. Bert kept in touch with his family by sending souvenirs home throughout his service.

 

The train ticket fromZillebeke to Houthem must date from a post war battlefield tour: Houthem was behind the lines for the period Bert was in Belgium.

The Piscola Trattoria in Rome must have been a favourite because there are 6 of these bills, presumably dating from Bert's time in Rome on leave from 9th to 17th May 1918.
