'Urgent Despatch' motorbike humorous postcard, WW1

For the officers' mess maybe?  This was one of a series of such postcards issued by Photochrome in the 1914-1918 period.  OHMS stood for On His Majesty's Service, and in NZ every letter from a government department used a brown envelope with those initials in black at least into the 1970s.
