Military Vintage Valentine Cards
During the 1940s when many people were involved in military operations, Valentine cards reflected what was happening in the world. Numerous cards were designed that depicted either military personnel or subsidiary or voluntary occupations.
Thankfully, they were light-hearted and funny and meant to relieve the stress of living in war years. Many though showed a sexist bias as women were usually shown in auxiliary roles such as WACs or nurses while men were piloting planes and doing more ‘manly’ tasks.
