Category: NEW ZEALAND - GALLIPOLI CAMPAIGN - The Gallipoli Fiasco

Description: 1915 usage of a British (?) advertising PPC for Deakin's Superior Jams & Marmalades with part Infantry Brigade cds & Censor #2640 cachet in rosine countersigned "JH Statham", minor separation defects at top hardly detract. The message states "This is the sort of jam we get to eat 1 tin to 4 men not much for 24 hours. I don't think your teeth could eat the hard biscuits we have. These post-cards come eight in a box of jam..." [Considering the extreme shortage of writing paper, it is amazing that such cards are not common. In fact, only one other Anzac example, from an Australian soldier, has been recorded]
