How to make a field postcard on 9 in May
During the Second World War in Russia (the USSR) there was a field mail on the transfer of "soldiers' triangles" to their relatives and friends. Such letters the soldiers wrote, as a rule, in moments of calm on the leaves of the ordinary notebook. The text was written with all the heart and with the news that the soldier was fine, that he was alive. Written letters were folded on a simple scheme in the "soldier triangle." To seal them was prohibited, since all field letters were read by military censors. Get a soldier "triangle" was a great happiness. But letters in envelopes people from the front were afraid, because they were sent funerals or notices that someone was missing.
You will need:
- sheet format A4;
- elements of decoration (for example, St. George's ribbon);
Print a thematic drawing with an improvised "field mail" stamp on an A4 sheet. You can use the template below or create your own. On the other side of the page will be the congratulatory text of the letter. You can sign a sheet by hand and age it with the help of tea leaves.
Prepare the letter according to the scheme in the "soldier's triangle."
Decorate the field letter with different elements at your discretion. It can be a St. George ribbon, a star made of red paper, twigs or something else.
That's all! Your field letter is ready. So congratulate the veterans, and just relatives and friends. Happy Holiday!
