The post card was sent (I think) in August 1915 and reads:

Delighted to hear from you, will write you a letter later. Awfully busy these days preparing for stocktaking etc..
Glad to know you are in such fine form and that you like your new life. Kindest regards from your many friends at the "point"
and best wishes from
(Can't quite make that bit out but looks like sister?) ending with possibly truly yours R.A.

Hi Brian

There was a chemist and druggist shop in the Point in 1910 called R.A. Jones - given the mention of stocktaking could this be relevant? So you may be looking for an R Burns from the Point. Also, is it "a sister" or "Miss D. Lister"?
