Postcard sent by Patrick Rossiter to his young son from France - "I Carry Hope"

Patrick Rossitor (possibly of the Munster Fusiliers) wrote postcards from France to his son Patrick back home in Leixlip Co Kildare, Ireland and later Stillorgan, Dublin. After the war, Patrick returned home to his wife Kate (nee Keegan) and three children, Bridget, Patrick and Edward.

The reverse of this postcard has the following message to Patrick from his father:

"My Dear Paddy,
Many thanks for your welcome letter. I am delighted you are such a good boy. I hope you will like this card. Your loving father, P Rossitor, somewhere in France."
