Inscription

Inscription Printed On front: DADDY'S ANGEL / And again he hears that question / Put by little lips of yore. / For she still is daddy's angel, / Though she clings to him no more. / Though he's all alone to-night there / With his memories of the past, / She is daddy's angel always / For her wings have grown at last. / (Words by permission of Gou'd & Co., 25 Polans St, W1)
Inscription Witten On reverse: Mrs Palmer / 8 Moorland Terr / Burryport / Carmarthenshire / Dear mother / I arrived safe have been / helping W with dishes / and swept kitchen went / for cake and lost myself / with love from / W and E
