About this object
Items like this handkerchief are characteristic of the souvenirs made and sold cheaply, and easily transportable either by mail or in the post, during World War One. Such mementoes were sold at both locations of the war effort: close to war zones where soldiers could buy them; and at home, appealing to families who might retain them as a keepsake of a loved one or post them overseas. Printed on the handkerchief is the musical score and lyrics of Jack Judge’s ‘It’s a long way to Tipperary’ which focuses on a soldiers nostalgia for home.
