From Sam and Diane, France

Sam and Diane, France

We moved here in July 2011, from Alton in Hampshire, when we retired. We know the area from previous holidays and liked being 1 hour from the coast, or 1 hour from the mountains. We are very happy here and have made many new friends.

This postcard is one of several collated as part of collaboration between Dr Michaela Benson and the Migration Museum. A selection of these appears in the Postcards from the British in Europe installation in Departures, the museum's current exhibition exploring four centuries of emigration from Britain, bringing Britain’s emigration story and its emigrants into the national conversation about migration
