This kard comes with an old, damaged label indicating it is coming from Lionel Bonham, the fourth Baronet of the Bonham family from Wiltshire. All family heads were serving in the Diplomatic and military services of the United Kingdom, and most probably this kard was collected by one of the earlier family members while he was servicing abroad.
