      On Saturday, 13th December 2003 a plaque commemorating Captain Bruce Bairnsfather was unveiled in St Yvon, Belgium. To mark this event, The Old Bill Newsletter published a special postcard (limited to 500 copies). The postcard, illustrated above, features the portrait of Bairnsfather by William H. Barribal which was exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1917 (which was owned by Bairnsfather himself until the late 1920’s), the first published Fragment from France “Where did that one go?” (originally conceived and drawn at St Yvon), the modern cottage at 12 Chemin du Mont de la Hutte, St Yvon, on which the plaque will be erected, and the full text of the plaque, as well as Bairnsfather’s distinctive signature.

      This postcard is the only official souvenir of the plaque event, and is therefore a MUST HAVE item for all Bairnsfather enthusiasts and collectors. The cards are priced £1.00 each, including postage. Purchases of 5-10 cards receive a 10% discount, 11-20 cards 15% discount and 21 cards and over 20% discount.
