Postcard link to the 1914 Naval battles
Anyone following the history of the naval battles off the Falklands and Coronel, Chile in 1914 will be interested in an article by Albert-Friedrich Gruene that appeared in Stamp News Australasia (Vol. 60 no:12 dated December 2013). Some excellent research by the author traced the origins of the writer of a postcard sent from the SMS Gneisenau after the battle off Coronel. A sad little tale which can be found on line at http://issuu.com/dahubbpostal/docs/sn2013-12/34?e=1873066/8138330
