Aeroplanes Training to Lick the Hun

Aeroplanes training to lick the Hun.

An unmailed and unaddressed post card.  Apparent pencil doodles added later.

My dear boys,
   How do you think you would like to be up in one of these flying machines?  I've see a great many in the sky everyday.  Since there were over two hundred all in the air at once.  There is a big aviation camp here and in the morning they practice over the Bay.  Sometimes they light on the water and just skim along.  Then they will rise like a bird and go into the air.  The boys have great fun, but sometimes one gets hurt.  With love Aunt Clara

Well I wouldn't want to be up in one. The life expectancy of those WWI flyboys was darn short! Something like six months. No thankee. Wouldn't want to do that.

What a wonderful post card. What a shame it was never sent.
