Too often we focus on the "big ticket" items, uniforms, flight gear, ect. These small items really help paint the picture of what the GI did and what Soldier's did on their free time. Red Cross canteen membercard, meal tickets, these are priceless items..

Thanks LB for sharing.  The bio info from the other website was very interesting..

I think these type of items really speak volumes of what each Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine, WAC, WAVE, SPAR, whoever it was, it helps show how they let off steam, and focused on having a little fun and relaxtion during such a terrible time..

It also shows the entent of organization and efficiency of the Armed Forces..

Meal Cards, Passes, ect

Too right !
Too often in collecting the Person behind the item is lost , as most of the time nothing is known about who used it etc...
especially if like Me You have a thing for really minty stuff ,its not always a good thing .
its always nice to put a name and or a face to an item .
lovely group LB !

Looking for any British/commonwealth and USAAF/USN aviation headgear 1939-45.
 Flight Helmets O2masks Goggles communications gear or spate parts .

Seeing as the original photos were not the best , I have taken some more ,but individually this time so more can be seen what is written on each card

It will be fairly pic heavy
