The nephew of a World War I soldier who lost a postcard while being treated in a military hospital nearly 100 years ago has been traced. Workers repairing the village hall in Shepreth found the card which had slipped inside a wooden panel.
The card was sent to Private Edward Wolstencroft of the Royal Fusiliers by a woman called Nellie in April 1915. Villagers will now meet his nephew, Paul Wolstencroft, from Hertfordshire, to decide what to do with the card.
