A child's jigsaw puzzle from World War One. The puzzle is named "The Flag Puzzle". The box depicts two children and their mother, with their soldier father coming home, presumably from the front. The puzzle pieces do not match the front cover, and instead depict the Union Jack, a cavalry charge and Lord Kitchener.

Kia ora I came upon this page as I was researching an entry in my great grandfathers war diary from 1918. "8 August 1918. On lewis gun training all morning In the afternoon went for a bath Got a wire from home to say that Jackie Lloyd was dead. Wrote a letter home No 15 Got a wire from home also Fine day" -John W. Murphy https://www.facebook.com/asoldiersdiary/ How sad this must have been for the family. His father was lying wounded in a military hospital in England at the time.
