Another delayed postcard

Post by Moonraker »

Only a couple of days ago was I thinking that we were due for another of those newspaper stories about a postcard being delivered decades late. I've just read this:

Postcard sent from WW2 veteran arrives in UK 77 years late

'A Royal Mail spokesperson said it is “difficult to speculate on what may have happened to this item of mail” although it was likely “put back into the postal system by someone recently, rather than being lost or stuck somewhere in the network”.'
