Included are original order sheets, examples of regimental (Royal Engineers) Christmas cards for 1944 & 1945, an invitation to meet Jan Smuts at the Hotel Minerva in Rome, a programme for a concert at Arezzo on August 5th, 1944 (Survey Co, SAEC), plus other personal (courting) photographs. A fascinating, intriguing collection. fk. Our orders are shipped using tracked courier delivery services.
