Community Voices - Esau Roberts: Postcards from WW I
By: Gladys (Hancock) Thomas
Esau Roberts, my grandfather, joined the navy and served on the HMS Victory in the First World War. Here are some of the pictures of him in his uniform and some of the old postcards sent by him from England. Some of the postcards are from my grandmother's cousin, Jack James, also an Able Seaman. Both these men were from Forteau. The postcards were sent to my grandmother, Victoria Flynn, from 1914-1916. My grandparents were married November 28, 1921.
