As part of my current purge project, I have finally tackled this suitcase, which contains some of my father’s WW2 memorabilia, as well as postcards and travel brochures from my parents honeymoon in 1947. I think I am far enough away from my dad’s death that I tackled it with curiosity and nostalgia instead of grief.
Some of the items are sad, some are rather entertaining.
Among the publications was this, sent because my uncle was in a German POW camp.
Who knew I’d find knitting? On the last page I spotted this pattern, named “Useful Gloves”
If anyone is interested in this pattern, I’d be glad to do a pdf to send. here‘s the pdf. Off for more sorting. French postcards, anyone?
