Another piece of History

There is something very poignant about this flyer dated 1919 where the Artillery boys from Biscot camp near Luton were helping raise money for the Soldiers in the Trenches Christmas lunch.
on the reverse is the programme and the cast but even more fascinating are the advertisements saying shop early to send your boys their presents and that in the Trenches it cannot be emphasized enough how important it is with the conditions as they are.
As we have just lost the last veteran I felt it was worth a post


  1. My father was born in 1919. He just turned 90 on July 1 and is happy and healthy and a US Marine Corps veteran.
