Back Souvenir

A wartime souvenir postcard

This view along Penkridge Bank on Cannock Chase was taken during World War I and shows Rugeley military camp (also known as Penkridge Bank camp) in the distance. The image was massed produced as a postcard, so soldiers stationed on the Chase could send a picture of their surroundings back home. After the war, the camp was dismantled so postcards such as this one recorded the view for posterity.
