Leaf From Rheims, a conundrum.
I found this leaf in my father’s effects years after his passing , it was in an envelope .Written on the front of the envelope is :
“Souvenir Leaf from Rheims Cathedral War Time Cache.”

At the time he was 17 year old soldier in WW1 in the Canadian Army. I have often wondered about this leaf perhaps a Redbubbler can shed some light on this puzzle.

I began my photographic hobby at the age of 12, developing and printing 120, 620 &35mm B&W, forever learning and refining the fascinating art of photography. Now at 78 I still continue with increased enjoyment using digital medium – and still learning.
My favourite places for photography are the Melbourne Zoos . These are the Melbourne Zoo , the Healesville Sanctuary and the Werribee Open Range Zoo.
