WW2 Photos and Finds


I will write a proper post about Military Flying Machines Show at some point (still need to do one on The Big O Fest too!), but wanted to share these. I purchased them at the weekend and some seemed to be owned by a polish soldier.

Where there has been writing on the back, I have included images. If anyone recognises regiments, places, people, can read the text or has any other interesting info, please get in touch so I can learn more.

Christmas in WWII. You can make out the tin foil Christmas decorations on the fern plants!

A polish football player coming to see the troops maybe?

Soldiers in stretchers, either side of a mule.

YMCA tent in the background.

Can you read the text on the back of this photo, taken in Egypt 1941?

Check point? What is the place on the sign?

Think these are prisoners of war?


Polish Soldier Pay Book


British Soldier Pay Book. Love that the description of his complexion is 'Fresh'!

The ones below seem to be part of a set. I don't know whether they are 'souvenir sets' or used for press? Can you understand the text on the back?
