A most treasured possession

This is a thing I would save in a fire. I got it from my dad; I can't remember how I found it or how he had it, but evidently he got it from his father (my grandfather, who I don't think I ever met). It's obviously from the end of WWII.

On the back it says, Compliments of your loving daughter, Glenda. She's my aunt, my dad's older sister. I wonder about what's behind that ballpoint-pen sentence.

It's a photograph, printed on very thin photo paper, but glossy. It's so old that the black areas are actually silver.
