One of five postcards relating to the transport ship SS Miltiades, contained in a yellow envelope. The envelope was contained in a diary probably written by sister Alice Elizabeth Cocking, later Sister Williams.

The memoir records life of a nurse on transport ships, in hospitals and on leave. It is written in a school exercise book some time after the event - possibly even after World War II.
