Having recently obtained another bundle of postcards just before Christmas on closer inspection, I was interested to find two sent to a Gunner COONEY in Sheerness in Kent – one is dated 31st July 1906 and the other 8th August 1906 both with a Northampton postmark.
The intriguing thing about these two postcards are the messages that are obviously written in some sort of lovers code to stop prying eyes at Gunner COONEY’s barracks!
Has anyone seen this code writing before and if so can you help to decipher these messages?
I am also interested to try and find out more about Gunner COONEY and his possible WW1 service.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
