Xmas Wishes Sent From Jungles

The sketch on the card shows a very plump soldier with the sweat rolling down off his forehead and the thermometer breaging (sic) out at the top, with the sea and a palm tree in the distance. Usually these kind of scenes show a few lady head hunters standing around in the gentle breezes, but apparently the women and children had all left the country.
