Postcard of the ruins of Louvain Catherdral, Belgium dated 11 Apr 1915,Postmark West Norwood 13 Apr 1915 to WJ Crisp Esq, West Wittering, nr Chichester from one of the Naylor family of 43 Romola Road, West Norwood.

"43 Romola Road 11.4.15 Now Easter is over I meant to acknowledge your very kind card before, I'm sorry, but must have overlooked it in my hurry. We went to Ramsgate and enjoyed it very well tho' the weather was poor. We hope to come your way someday & have kept your explanatory letters. I trust Mrs Robinson is progressing I was very sorry to hear of her accident. With thanks and kind regards Y [?]Naylor"

WJ Crisp was Wiliam James Crisp, my great grandfather.
