Three charming vintage Kinmel Camp postcards

Thanks to Colin Watt for his comment: “My Grandfather was at Kinmel Park camp in the first world war. He was pvt 6033 J.E.Bayley in the Royal Welsh Fusiliers. He was wounded at Ypres on the 30th Sept 1917 and admitted to the St Johns Ambulance brigade hospital at Etapler France with severe leg wound. I have two post cards from Kinmel Park and, if you are interested, will forward copies. One is called “A Soldier’s Letter To His Sweetheart”, and the other is “A Soldiers Dream Of Home”, both were sent to my Grandmother during training.”

    I have a photograph/postcard of my grandfather taken at Kinmel Park Hospital where he was taken after having suffered an accident whilst with Royal Defence Corps. I would be grateful for any information on the subject.
