Object Description
A black and white formal portrait of a man dressed in a military uniform. The picture is printed on a souvenir postcard. On the back, there is Greek writing, from what you can make out his name is Anthony, and he is writing to his brother. He is standing in front of a building on a grate. One hand is holding onto a pouch that is attached to his belt. The other hand is holding onto a rifle, and the butt of the rifle is resting on the ground.
