The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

No, post cards. They issued various series.
I collected a bunch relating the shooting down of a Zep over Cuffley. So I got exposed to WW1 themed postcards. A rather odd collecting endeavor.
