and monuments of the Western Front.

Very nice postcards. Is there a number on the back that would give you any idea that they are from a series?

With all the roulette markings on the left side of the cards I would think that these were probably contained in a souvenir booklet.

IMO The Dutch cemetaries are beautiful displays of affection for all military personel who lost their lives at war. It shows a great respect to any who gave their lives in the name of freedom.

In most cases these were from souvenir booklets produced for visitors to the battlefield sites in 1920's and 1930's.
