World War I Centenary 2014 - 2018

To remember the World War I Centenary I try to collect as many cards related to it. I am interested in postcards of the battlefields and other places of interest (today view), of poster art (during and after war), of exhibitions on the War and all other things. I also try to collect as many World War I Centenary stamps as possible. On the blog I will write the information on the World War I in red.
