This postcard was sent to Zig
Boroughs by Jim Blue. Since there is no postage or cancellation mark
on it, the card must have been enclosed with something else.
The card has an appropriator
motif of pasratropp4ers landing amidst glider troops, although that was not
the sequence of events on D-Day. It bears a pre-printed cancellation
mark of June 6, 1944 in honor of the 50th anniversary of D-Day.
