Clearly having more money that sense--and this would be true if I had but sixpence--I've been picking up an increasing amount of ephemera, paperwork and memorabilia this year. As I suspect I'm not alone, I'm starting this thread so that you can show us what gems you are cluttering your homes up with. There are separate threads for books and medals, I think, but not much else. Today's purchase--not yet received in the post--but bought for a song, relatively speaking: Two Christmas cards and a party invite--pretty dull, eh? But open them up and you find one is signed by Alexander (1946) and the other by Auchinleck (1943). Random addition, but it's amazing how much signed items by Monty sell for. You're looking at over a hundred quid for just a scrap of paper or a reunion programme--and he was quite generous with his autograph for soldiers and former soldiers.
