The Unknown Sailor Postcard - a Memory of Thursley.
Whilst going through my mother's things I came across a postcard of a gravestone 'In Memory of' then goes on to show the poem that was written which at the end says it was given by the generous public, on the back where you would put your stamp it says 'please affix halfpenny stamp'. It appears that a love engraving of the villains fighting the sailor at the top of the gravestone then the verse. I wondered if the gravestone was still there today and if the inscription was still readable.
