[CLOSED] Chrisbonham11's 10th Postcrossing Birthday British Isles Lottery #3

Hello British Isles Forum Folks!

21 September 2024 is my 10th Postcrossing birthday! On 21 September 2014, I signed up to Postcrossing. I don’t know now how I found out about the project, alas. What I do know is that I’ve had ten grand years as a Postcrosser, and I’m looking forward to the next ten years! The last three years, during which time I’ve interacted with so many of you British Isles folks in this lovely corner of the Internet, have been especially fun.

I have decided to mark my 10th Postcrossing birthday, and share the celebrations, by hosting a monthly Birthday British Isles Lottery each month this year. Each month I will pick out ten unused postcards on a particular theme from my stash. The draw will take place with the assistance of Postbot on the 21st of each month.

The theme for March’s Birthday British Isles Lottery is: Transport

I’m a fan of all modes of transport, so this month I’m sharing some postcards of different modes of transport! Trains, trams, cars, airships… you name it, I like it!
