This hand painted floral watercolor tugs at your heart as you read the letter on the reverse. A WWII solider at the Red Cross in London received this from a worker during his visit or recovery in 1945 - 1946. The calendar was sent home with a heart felt message of thanks and "I love you".

I'm sure there is a more in-depth story to this wonderful keepsake recorded someplace in the archives of the Red Cross history during the time.

The art work is well executed and displays the work of a trained artist. The ribbon at the top is pink and made of silk. I'm sure the intent was to be hung in a bedroom or hospital ward while the solider rehabbed.

The 1946 calendar is original and complete. There are 12 pages for months, Jan. - Dec.

Size - 10" x 6"
