Many of the people depicted on these cards are anonymous; if anyone can help identify them we would be pleased to hear from you. Please contact the

Webmaster if you can help.

A separate series of postcards from the GUY family (also donated by Kåre Eriksson) depicting military subjects can be seen at Guy - Military Postcards

In the titles above the postcards, which are based on any inscriptions on the cards, the titles include {P} which indicates the name of the photographer; this often helps to identify the area from which the subject came.
