A holiday postcard from Amsterdam has left a Cambridgeshire woman astonished after it took nearly four decades to reach its destination.
The postcard took 39 years to reach its destination in England
Elaine Jackson, who is in her 60s and lives in Cambridge, said the card had been posted by her aunt, Winnie Blampied, from Holland in 1965.
It was addressed to her parents who have been dead for nearly 20 years. Her aunt also died more than a decade ago.
She said the delivery was "astonishing" but added she would treasure the card.
"The card was addressed to my parents," she said. "They've been dead nearly 20 years and my aunt, who lived in Jersey and was on holiday in Holland, has been dead 10 or 12 years.
"But where has it been all this time? Why has it turned up now?"
Mrs Jackson added: "The card's not actually that interesting. It just said she was staying in a nice hotel and so on."
