Postcards from France

The  attached photograph was sent to my great grandparents in Ushaw Moor by my grandad who was stationed in France during World War One. He was part of the pioneer corps attached to the Durham Light Infantry. I never really knew my grandad as he died when I was just seven. Apparently he spent the whole war collecting dead bodies as he was deemed unfit to go to the front because of his profound deafness. I was told by my father that he never ever talked about his experiences, but it affected him all of his life.
