Keep Calm and Carry On

I haven’t uploaded a new postcard for a while. But I found one tucked away in a drawer. It’s ever so British. Ever wondered where the Keep Calm And Carry On phrase sprang from a few years ago? It was created for posters in World War II to keep the collective chin up in the event of a German invasion. Happily, the posters weren’t needed. Unless you lived in the Channel Islands.

Would you like this postcard? It’s free! As are all the postcards in the archive awaiting new owners. Just check out the Postcards page and then follow the instructions. Certain rules apply, which may be made up as I go along and are liable to change without notice. But otherwise, it couldn’t be easier.

  1. As a past recipient, I suggest an additional rule: “The Honored Recipient shall place the Even More Honorable Card in a place of prominence in the aforesaid Honored Recipient primary residence. Failure to do so will result in the forfeiture of the other-aforesaid Even More Honorable Card, and a three month expense-free visit from The Right Honorable Sender of Her Majesty’s postal cards.”

    Feel free to make the rule retroactive. The psychedelic queen is standing guard in my home as I travel.

    1. That seems like a very sound rule. Although I do feel that one could elaborate on the technical requirements of being an official, and honourable, post card recipient a little more.

      I’m glad the Queen is still standing guard.
